Important Scholarship Application Information
Trackers believes in providing opportunities for children to attend our programs in cases of true financial hardship. We are committed to serving as many families as possible; however, scholarship funds are limited. Typical awards range from 20-50% of the non-discounted program tuition with further consideration given based on financial need. Due to the large volume of requests we receive, awards are limited to one week of camp per participant.
Please be aware that many programs fill early and we cannot guarantee an award or placement in a specific program. To reserve a space in the program of your choice, consider signing up for one or our monthly payment plans. Payment plans may be adjusted at a later date if your family is awarded a scholarship.
Scholarship applications will be accepted through March 15, 2016. Scholarship recipients will be notified of awards via email by April 1, 2016.
Scholarship applications do not guarantee a place in our summer camp program. To reserve a space in the program of your choice, consider signing up for one or our monthly payment plans. Payment plans may be adjusted at a later date if your family is awarded a scholarship.
After School, Homeschool, Apprenticeship Programs
The majority of our funds are allocated for the school year by July 15th, and scholarship applications will close entirely for the 2016-2017 school year on August 1st. Please apply early for the best possibility of an award. (Scholarships may be considered during the year depending on funds available.)
Starting a school from scratch is a tremendous undertaking, with significant costs and overhead. We anticipate outlaying more capital to support the Forest School than we will receive in tuition fees, especially in the first year. We have elected to keep tuition at the lowest possible level for all students. During our first year, we will be unable to offer any scholarships for the Trackers Forest School. In future years, we intend to build a robust scholarship program based on financial need to help make the Trackers Forest School a reality for as many students as possible.
Flexible monthly payment plans for our 2016 Summer Camps will be available through March 31st, 2016. More information can be found here. All 2016-2017 school year programs will be billed monthly.
