Important Scholarship Application Information
Trackers Earth 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 awards are limited. We make every effort to prioritize our avaiable funds to the First-Round Scholarship applications—it is reccomend applying early.
How It Works
Option 1 First-Round Scholarships First-Round Scholarships have a specific application timeline. To be eligible, you must apply before the date listed for each program (below). While not guaranteed, First-Round Scholarships are more likely to be awarded over the Rolling Scholarship option (Option 2).
Option 2 Rolling Scholarships On rare occasion parents awarded First-Round Scholarships do not utilize all their available funds. We then add these funds our Rolling Scholarship pool. If you apply after the deadline for First-Round Scholarships, you are eligible for Rolling Scholarships. Important details for Rolling Scholarships:
- With Rolling Scholarships, you may not recieve any response if no funds become available.
- Many Rolling Scholarships will be program specific, depending on available room the following week.
- Since many Rolling Scholarships are offered the Saturday or Sunday before summer camp begins (Monday), the acceptence window is short. You must respond quickly before we offer it to another prospective family.
