Scholarships 

KidSpirit Summer Scholarship Application!

KidSpirit is committed to serving everyone in our community and ensure all youth have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive — which is why we provide financial aid through our Scholarship Program, reducing the cost of program fees and child care services that are offered through our Summer Day Camps.

Due to the high number of scholarships requests, KidSpirit only awards scholarships based on financial need and are generally 50% of the program registration.  We do make exceptions for extenuating circumstances and situations such as a family in medical crisis, foster families, etc. We will strive to help in any way we can to make KidSpirit accessible to all families. 

To determine financial need, we use the 2018 Federal Poverty Income Guidelines, informally referred to as the "federal poverty level." The guidelines determine the benefit levels of many low-income assistance programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

It is important to recognize that the federal poverty level is well below what it actually takes for a family to meet basic needs.  

Scholarship Qualifications 

In order to qualify for our scholarship, families need to provide proof of financial need in any of the ways below:

  1. Express Verification (one of the following)

  • Letter from state stating family qualifies for SNAP benefits and/or free or reduced lunch
  • Documentation of qualifying for Head Start
  • Letter from caseworker for foster children

    2. Traditional Verification (Both listed below)

  • One-page, typed statement describing circumstances and need for requesting an OSU KidSpirit Summer Day Camp Scholarship.
  • Letter of recommendation from a non-family member, addressing the parent’s/guardian’s level of need and how/why the OSU KidSpirit Summer Day Camp will benefit the child.

And one of the options below:

  • Copy of two of your most recent pay stubs, with all additional sources of monthly income documented.
  • Most recent tax return — first two pages of Forms 1040 or 1040A (Self-employed individuals must include Schedule C)
  • Other income verification (if applicable): SSI or Disability Statement letter, Unemployment Benefits
