Adult Scholarship Policies & Procedures

  • Scholarships are available from the Ventura County Council for any Ventura County Council Scouter to attend one of programs listed below.
  • Only one Scholarship fund request will be granted per applicant per year to allow us to serve as many people as possible. The maximum amount of aid per program is listed below.
  • Each person requesting financial aid must fill out a separate form.
  • A reservation for a  program must be made before this request for financial aid will be processed. 
  • Incomplete applications will be returned without processing.
  • Scholarships once awarded are not transferable to another applicant. If an applicant approved for funds does not attend the activity for which the funds were requested, the Scholarship is forfeited and only the initial fee will be charged. Each recipient may be asked to complete a postcard thanking Scholarship fund donors. This will occur at the activity.
  • Turn in the application early to ensure consideration. Applications may be submitted beginning 90 days prior to the activity. Limited scholarships are available each year and granted on a first come, first served basis.
  • All completed and signed requests for Camperships must be submitted on this form. The deadline for submittal is 90 Days prior to the activity. Requests turned in after, will only be considered if additional funding becomes available but must be in the council office no later than four weeks prior to the start of the activity. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that this form is submitted on or before the deadline.
  • The family of the applicant will receive written notification of any decision 60 Days prior, but 50% of your Camp fee must be paid in advance and if awarded, the scholarship will be applied to the remainder of the reservation balance. NOTE: All Scholarship funding decisions made are final. All Scholarships are handled via a fund transfer to your reservation balance and no checks are mailed to recipients.
