ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIPS
Funding is not guaranteed and is dependent on eligibility criteria and availability of funds. Scholarship funding is limited, we strongly recommend that applications are submitted as early as possible for desired programming. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
In general, scholarships will be awarded on a case by case basis and may be up to 100% program coverage. A sliding income scale may be utilized to determine a larger award amount. Summer camp applications will first be awarded using TANF funds, up to 75% of the cost of camp. For Summer Camp ONLY: if you qualify for up to 100% and/or need additional assistance to pay for camp, please make sure to email or call Friends of PAC and leave a detailed explanation of your circumstances. The goal of TANF is to provide childcare during the summer to maintain employment. Friends of PAC is very eager to help families attend camp at little to no cost and have additional funding outside of the TANF grant for extenuating circumstances. If you need any assistance in completing the application please email email@example.com and we will assistant in any way that we can.
