David Laney Scholarship Fund

 

The David Laney Scholarship Fund, established in 2008, began awarding scholarships to eligible CJL campers in 2015. Since then, 32 young women have received scholarships to spend a week or two sleeping in tents, making new friends, and growing in confidence in the beautiful, natural setting of CJL.

 

Scholarship Award

Scholarships consist of a partial payment of camp fees in the amount of $500. Scholarship awards cover only a portion of required camp fees and DO NOT include Trading Post money (recommended $25 per week) or the registration deposit of $150.

 

Eligibility

Girls between the ages of 8 and 17 with financial need are eligible for scholarship consideration. Children and grandchildren of current Trustees, year-round employees, or executive employees of Camp Juliette Low are not eligible to receive a scholarship.

 

How to Apply

  1. A Camp Juliette Low Scholarship Application should be completed and signed by the camper’s parent/guardian, and mailed to CJL’s winter office no later than January 15. Incomplete applications may not be considered for scholarship awards. Scholarship applications may be accepted after the deadline if scholarship awards remain available.
  2. A regular Summer Camp Application must be submitted online at the time of application. Scholarship applicants for the Counselor-in-Training program must also fill out a CIT Application. Go to the Forms & Applications page under the “For Parents” tab for the links.
  3. The $150 registration deposit must accompany the application. In cases where the applicant does not receive or cannot use a scholarship, this deposit is fully refundable.
  4. Applicants will be notified whether their campers have been awarded scholarships by early February. 

 

About the Fund

The David Laney Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Camp Juliette Low’s former trustee and treasurer, David Laney, through the generosity of his partners at Page, Scrantom, Sprouse, Tucker & Ford, P. C. , his friends, and other donors to provide financial assistance enabling more girls to attend Camp Juliette Low.

 

Scholarships will be funded from interest or investment earnings on the Scholarship Fund or from the current year’s donations.
