Scholarships for Hog Island (Maine) Audubon Camps

APPALACHIAN AUDUBON SOCIETY (AAS) IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR OUR
2018 HOG ISLAND TEEN CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS

AAS is a chapter of National Audubon Society (NAS) in south-central Pennsylvania, with membership in Cumberland, Dauphin, Northern York and Perry counties (as determined by NAS zip-codes). This year we are offering TWO, full Hog Island Teen Camp scholarships (excluding transportation to/from camp): Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens, Sessions One and Two.

Our annual ability to offer camp scholarships depends upon chapter fundraising; donations always welcome.

Primary Eligibility for our Scholarship: 14-to-17-year-old girls and boys in our chapter territory, with either a demonstrated passion for, or an awakening, demonstrated curiosity about birds and/or natural history/science, willing to "give back” from their Hog Island learning experiences to our chapter and their local communities. First consideration for this scholarship goes to teens living in our chapter territory.

Secondary Eligibility: Non-chapter-resident 14-17-year-olds may also be considered - birding/wildlife volunteer and family connections to our area strengthen non-resident applications. We can also sometimes offer partial scholarships/financial support to strong candidates outside our formal process, who demonstrate financial need.

Other Hog Island Scholarship Potential Eligibility: If you would be interested in applying to us for scholarships towards Educator Camp or Family Camp, please contact us; those may become a possibility. Educator Camp: for teachers, youth leaders…; Family Camp: for at least one adult relative/guardian + child aged 8 to 13 years (see Hog Island Programs for details.)

Chapter-Territory Residents: Please also see additional Youth and Educator camp/continuing education scholarships for camps in Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic region, on our website.
