The Dr. John Folks Scholarship Program strives to make the Learning Tree Program accessible to as many students as possible. The goals of the program are to provide a safe place for students to engage in productive activities during the after school hours, and to promote parental involvement in order to stress the importance of the parent role in their child's education. A limited number of tuition waivers are available. In order to be considered for this scholarship, both criteria must be met:
*Qualify for Financial Hardship (Household income must be within the limits of the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines). Proof of income will need to be provided.
*Have a Child Care Need (parents who are working during after school hours, legal guardian grandparents, foster parents, or parents attending school).
- Proof of work employment and copy of work schedule will be required.
- Proof of enrollment in school and copy of Fall or Spring schedule will be required if applicable.
- Legal documents to support Foster Placement or custodial grandparents (legal guardianship).
*If accepted into scholarship program parent/guardian must pay the standard registration fee per child ($30 per year) prior to program start date.
