IF YOUR FAMILY IS ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY COVID-19

Knowing that 2020 has been financially difficult for many families, we are designating approximately ten percent of our Grace Art Camp spots for scholarship recipients. If you have been adversely affected by COVID-19, please get in touch so we can help! We have always considered “extenuating circumstances” in awarding scholarships, and any consequences affecting our Grace Art Camp families due to the pandemic and economic downturn will be given serious consideration.  Contact our Business Manager, Annie Rimmer-Weeks, at annier@grace-institute.org.

APPLICANTS WHO TRANSFERRED FROM 2020 TO 2021

  • If you transferred to 2021 as a scholarship applicant, you will be asked to update your application form. You do not need to pay an additional fee.
  • If you transferred and have already paid for a full tuition place in camp for 2021 and your financial circumstances changed in 2020, you may apply for a full or partial scholarship.

HOW TO APPLY – SCHOLARSHIPS ARE STILL AVAILABLE

Grace Institute is committed to serving children and families from as many backgrounds and situations as possible.  Full and partial camp scholarships are awarded to families at 1 to 3 times the federal poverty level or less.  For 2021, this amount is $26,200 to $78,600 per year for a family of four.

To be considered for a scholarship, submit a completed camp registration form and the $30 scholarship application fee per applicant. By registering in a timely manner, each scholarship applicant reserves a space in camp.

You must submit a completed Scholarship Application Form along with requested documentation, by April 15, 2021 for summer’s Grace Art Camp . Scan and email all documents to annier@grace-institute.org or mail to GRACE INSTITUTE, 1535 NE 17th Ave, Portland, OR 97232. Please do not drop off forms or documents in person at this time.

2021 Grace Art Camp Scholarship Application

Please note that scholarships cannot be awarded without appropriate documentation and a completed application. Scholarship award announcements for summer typically come out in mid-May.

If you are already qualified for some form of public assistance, such as reduced school lunches and have the verification letter, or a card for a subsidized health care plan, copies of this documentation help us to automatically qualify a family for a scholarship.

You may request PDFs of both a camp registration form and a scholarship form from the Business Manager at annier@grace-institute.org or the Operations Manager & Registrar at mariannk@grace-institute.org.
