Our academy has a limited number of scholarships available to students in need, with special consideration given to applications from low income families and/or applications from underrepresented student populations.
There are two types of available: one that covers half tuition and one that covers all of tuition. You do not need to identify which you are applying for. Recipients of scholarships are still required to arrange travel and related expenses. The number of scholarships given is dependent on the number of students who have enrolled in the academy.
In order to apply for a scholarship, students are asked to prepare a packet of documents (some mandatory and some optional), which include:
- A cover letter introducing yourself and your motivation for attending Slam Camp (mandatory)
- Proof of financial hardship (mandatory)
- An essay that addresses the three provided questions (mandatory)
- A recommendation letter from a teacher, mentor, or coach (optional)
- A writing sample of 1 - 2 original poems (optional)
Applications are due no later than April 24th.
