2020 Summer Camp Scholarships
COVID 19 Update - Thank you to all who applied for a scholarship to one of our 2020 summer camps. We had a tremendous response. Our scholarship awards were under review as our country began the Stay-At-Home protocol. Therefore, no awards were announced for 2020.
We are happy to offer our 2020 Virtual Rock N Reel Summer for free!!!
Our summer camp tuitions are based on the sliding-scale honor system with ranges from $450-$350 for 6 full days of camp, with instruments/gear and snacks provided. A sliding scale is a tool to ensure families have equitable access to experiences like our Summer Camps, regardless of financial resources. We ask for your honest and active participation in deciding your contribution. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for tuition. While we are a small organization, we make sliding scale a priority because we acknowledge that we live in a world of differing privileges and income disparities.
We understand however that for various reasons not every family can afford to pay within the full tuition range, so we have created a range of reduced tuition amounts that makes this amazing opportunity available to everyone. Please consider your family income, resources and dependents when in the household when determining your requested tuition amount. We can also provide lunch for campers and LYNX/light rail tickets as well, if requested.
Scholarship requests for the Girls Rock Charlotte 2020 Summer Camps will be accepted on a rolling basis of three rounds of review: February 28, March 31, April 30.
Scholarships are awarded by the Girls Rock Charlotte Board based on availability, need, diversity, sustained relationships with returning campers, and enthusiasm. They are NOT awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are not awarded a scholarship in the first round, you may receive one in the second or third round. Please note that if a scholarship is awarded, you will be asked to complete a brief demographic survey. Recipients of full and partial scholarships to Girls Rock Charlotte will be notified no later than May 15, 2020 so that families can make their summer care plans.
Due to our limited funds, we cannot afford to grant every request for reduced tuition...but we will try. Also, please don't hesitate to ask - this is what we are all about.
