Scholarship Amount
Please let us know the scholarship amount you are requesting. It is not guaranteed you will receive the full amount requested. It is our goal to allow as many families as possible to participate so we will do our best to accomodate every need. Please take into consideration if you can afford to pay for a portion of your session, that will allow another family the opportunity to participate.
Please contact an advocate prior to applying for the scholarship so they can give you an estimate of how many hours they anticipate it will require to resolve your issue and provide you with a brief work plan as to how that will be done. You will need to explain why you need an advocate, your plan and the approximate hours they estimate it may take to assist you with your issue. We will approve the number of hours and pay the advocate upon invoice for UP TO the approved hours in your award letter. Scholarships are not available for services already provided.
