Due to Covid 19 and our concerns for the near future, we are reviewing our policies for scholarships and will be posting these soon. Thank you for your interest and patience.
The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department will offer program scholarships for qualified children as funds are available.
To register for a class (excluding Zoo classes/programs) and receive one of the limited number of scholarships, please check out the information below for a list of qualifications.
Please provide a school letter and if that is not available, alternative official documentation includes:
* A copy of the applicant family’s most recent U.S. Internal Revenue Service Tax Return form (Social Security # blacked out).
* A letter from the State indicating qualification for Food Stamps.
Fill out the registration form and bring it with the letter from your school stating that you qualify for the free lunch and free textbooks to: 705 E. State Blvd. Please bring a method of payment (credit card, check, cash) for additional fees over $50.
FAX your school letter stating you qualify for the free lunch and free text books to 260.427.6020. Include your credit card number on the registration form for additional fees over $50 in case your request is denied and the entire amount will be processed on your credit card.
The Youth Scholarship program is made possible by the generous donations from corporate partners. We’d like to offer more kids the opportunity to play with the Parks – and encourage more corporations to get involved! Just call Sarah @260-427-6024 if you would like your company to participate.
