Scholarships/Financial Aid (deadline March 1st)

Bluebird Trail Management 2018The OWjL Program is fortunate to be able to offer financial assistance to qualified students to help offset program costs. This is possible through the generous contributions of foundations, organizations, community groups and individuals. Each individual student scholarship is based upon demonstrated financial need and typically ranges from 20% - 95% of the OWjL tuition. First consideration for scholarship support will be given to new applicants. Financial aid recipients from previous years are also eligible and encouraged to apply.

Students who receive scholarships are expected to send a thank you note describing their experiences to their sponsor while they are at camp.

A completed financial aid application, along with your supporting documents, must be submitted online,  in order to be eligible for a scholarship. You will be able to apply for Financial Aid during the application process.

All financial information provided will be treated confidentially and must be received by March 1st.
