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 2023, this amount is $26,500 to $79,500 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 18, 2023 for summer’s Grace Art Camp and by February 22, 2023 for Spring Break Camp. Scan and email all documents to 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.

2023 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 early/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 fillable PDFs of both a camp registration form and a scholarship form from the Business Manager at or the Registrar at
