Manasota BUDS is pleased to offer Summer Camp and Enrichment Activities Scholarships for the Summer of 2021!
Manasota BUDS requires that an online application be completed for all individuals with Down syndrome who wish to receive a scholarship for the Summer of 2021 to attend a summer camp, approved enrichment activities, summer classes or other approved activity. This scholarship is available to individuals with Down syndrome living in Manatee or Sarasota county. If applying from a surrounding Florida county, Board of Directors approval is required and not guaranteed. NO OUT-OF-STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Applications should be completed no later than May 15, 2021 to be considered for a Summer 2021 scholarship. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application via email following review by the Board of Directors.
The maximum scholarship amount will be determined by dividing the amount of the scholarship budget by the number of applicants. Applicants can provide more than one Summer activity to be considered for the scholarship, however, only one maximum scholarship amount will be awarded per individual with Down syndrome. (For example, if the maximum scholarship amount is $400 per person, one individual with Down syndrome can apply for $300 to be paid to a summer camp and $100 to be paid to a swimming center for lessons.) If applying for more than one - you MUST provide information for ALL facilities within this application.
All scholarship recipients must attend the activity at a facility which has been approved by the Manasota BUDS Board of Directors. Approval of all programs/facilities will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
All approved scholarships will be paid directly to the facility. In the event that the family has made a pre-payment to the facility, the scholarship MAY be paid to the family, upon receiving documentation that the payment was made in advance. This amount is subject to the maximum scholarship amount, to be determined upon receipt of all applications and approval from the Board of Directors.
