This application is intended to be completed in two parts: by a VI professional and by the student. It is intended to assist in travel and is good for up to $500.
SCIVIS helps students see themselves as leaders; as an empowered person. It is expected and a requirement of this application that the student take a leadership role in completing this application. It is also expected that the student will “pay it forward” when s/he returns from Space Camp.
It is also expected that evidence of this activity will be 1) supervised and/or supported by either VI staff or family members and 2) evidence of completion will be returned by May 15 of the same school year unless previously requested. Failure to return information about the required activity may affect the eligibility of future students in the region and/or district.
We understand that the student’s responses will reflect her or his age and level of experiences. This, like Space Camp/SCIVIS, is a growth activity. Completing this application is intended to be part of the leadership experience that is at the core of the SCIVIS experience.
