3. Within a month of submitting your application, send the following documents:

  • a written letter by the applicant: addressed to the selection committee of the EOF board, explaining the applicant’s motivation for the application; i.e., what does the applicant hope to gain from the experience, what/how does the applicant hope to contribute to the host community, what challenge(s) can the applicant foresee and how will the applicant address/overcome those challenges should they arise ( i.e., homesickness)

  • a written letter by the applicants parent or guardian: addressing the same questions as above.
    (Note: The parent or guardian is encouraged to talk with the applicant before the letters are written but the student should write their own letter.)

  • a note outlining other sources of funding: we encourage the applicant and or family to pursue some form of fundraising.

  • all applicable and most recent 1040 tax forms

  • 1040 tax forms from additional guardians outside the primary household

  • a photograph of the applicant

  • name of a sponsor: If appropriate, applicants are encouraged to identify a sponsor to help them through the application process and the tasks associated with preparing for their summer experience (organizing transportation, acquisition of materials required for the program, and perhaps guidance in anticipation of and during the program.)

What happens next?

Upon receipt of a complete application, EOF staff will assess the applicant and if feasible, secure a camp placement. Once a placement is secured, if accepted, the applicant will then begin all paperwork associated with the placement (summer camp application, health form and other forms required by the organization).  If a placement cannot be secured at the time of application, EOF will hold your application aside for re-review should funding or space become available.  If you have previously been granted a scholarship please do not assume that it will be granted again; the process begins fresh at the beginning of each enrollment season.

As all scholarship funds awarded are raised by the EOF and equally matched by the receiving organization, we suggest that you explore other/additional funding possibilities while waiting for a decision on the status of your application.  The best scenario is when applicants are able to gather support from a variety of sources.
