Scholarship FAQ

What does it cover?
The Summer @LSMSA Scholarship covers the $399 registration cost for an overnight camper or the $299 registration cost for a day camper. This includes all meals, activities, course materials, and lodging (if applicable). It does not cover additional snacks or merchandise purchased during camp.

Are there partial scholarships? 
Yes. In recent years we have been able to award full (100%) and partial (50%) scholarships as well as honorable mention awards (25%). 

Who is eligible?
All prospective campers are invited to apply for one of our available scholarships.

Does this register me for camp?
No. You must still complete the registration form. If you have already completed registration and are awarded a scholarship, you will receive a reimbursement for your registration fee for the scholarship amount.

Will I get the week I want?
We will make every effort to register you for the session and courses you want, but unfortunately, space is limited and available spots fill quickly. If you are already registered for a specific session of camp, you will be able to stay in that session.

When are essays due?
All entries should be submitted by March 1.
