Scholarship Eligibility & Application

Our course fees are set on a "sliding scale" based upon a family's Annual Household Income or Adjusted Gross Income. See below tables describing the fees and sliding-scale for each course.
 
The registration and lottery process for admitance to the Courageous Sailing Summer youth programs is “Need-Blind.” This means that admission, in no respect, is based on ability to pay. Scholarships are readily available for all who qualify. Extenuating circumstances are always taken into consideration should a family choose to share them with our staff. All financial and personal information is kept confidential.
 
Important
Scholarship applications and payment for 2015 will not be accepted until after enrollment confirmations have been sent in April.

Instructions for Scholarship Applicants:

The scholarship application is contained within the enrollment form that is mailed to each registered student following the lottery. There is no separate scholarship application form.
Please contact the Director of Youth Programs (617) 242-3821, ext. 12 with any questions or to obtain an additional copy of the enrollment form. Thank you!
 

Please submit one or more of the following with your enrollment form: 

    • 2014 Federal Income Tax Form 1040
    • Proof of being on a government assistance program (see FAQ)

 

Note 
No scholarship application will be processed without copies of one or more of the above documents. This information will be reviewed solely by the Youth Program Director, the Executive Director, and their administrative assistants. After review, these sensitive documents will be destroyed immediately. For extra security, please black out Social Security Numbers on any documents you send us.
 
Optional
To your scholarship application form, feel free to attach a separate page detailing any other information that may be helpful in determining financial need for extenuating circumstances.

10% Sibling Discount: For families paying course fees for more than one child, we offer a 10% discount on the course fees for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. children registered. If different amounts are due for each child, the highest course fee is due in full, and the discount applies to the rest. The discount does not apply if you have been awarded a scholarship.
