SCHOLARSHIPS FOR THE AUTISM SESSION AT CAMP TALL TREE
Camp Tall Tree awards scholarships each year, based on need and availability of funds. The scholarship application is built into our regular online application for camp.
Begin an online application, and apply for a scholarship when you reach the “Financial Form” of our application. You must fill out the entire application and submit supporting documentation to apply for a scholarship. Our camp is young, and while access to camp is very important to us, we have only as many scholarships as we can fundraise. If you would like to apply for one, be sure to APPLY EARLY, as scholarships are awarded on first come first served basis. We strongly suggest applying for some of these grants as well, and applying early.
