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.  In 2020, this amount is $25,750 to $77,250 per year for a family of four. We are also able to offer a limited number of scholarships to assist families in extenuating circumstances.

To be considered for a scholarship, submit a completed camp registration form and $30 scholarship application deposit. 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, 2020 (for summer’s Grace Art Camp  and March 8 for Spring Break Camp) to:

GRACE INSTITUTE, 1535 NE 17th Ave, Portland, OR 97232

Please note that scholarships cannot be awarded without appropriate documentation and a completed application. Scholarship awards for summer typically come out in late-April.

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 or the Operations Manager & Registrar at
