Washington Business Week and Alaska Business Week and their contributors strive to make programs available to as many students as possible, regardless of their ability to pay. For those that qualify, there is limited financial assistance available through the generosity of community organizations, businesses and supporters of Business Week. It’s available on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to one program per student, per summer. Funds are awarded according to a sliding fee scale in relation to family size, the total household income, and demonstrated extenuating circumstances.
100% camperships are not awarded. It is our belief that some portion of the registration fee, dependent upon the ability to pay, should be contributed by the applicant to provide a sense of commitment and responsibility towards attendance and participation in the program. Therefore, families are expected to participate by paying a portion of the registration fee. The FA awards are tailored as much as possible to fit each family’s needs (for example, extenuating circumstances play a part in our award determination). Financial Assistance cannot be applied toward the optional college credits offered by Edmonds Community College.
All applications for financial assistance are treated with confidentiality. Participants who receive financial assistance are enrolled and included in the program with no regard to their financial status. Staff and participants have no information regarding this status.
To request financial assistance, please completely fill out one of the forms below and submit a registration for the program you want to attend. All financial assistance applications should be submitted as early as possible as funds are limited. The application deadline for financial assistance is May 1st unless funds are still available.
