Who Can Apply for STOP Scholarship Funds?
STOP Scholarship funds are available to youth up to age 18. Applicants and/or their parent/guardian must fall into one or more of the following categories: Low income household, temporary financial hardship, unemployment, single parent household, and/or multiple children participating.
Athletic programs, classes, and some youth activities and special events. For a list of activities currently being offered, please refer to our web pages for sports, youth activities, special events, tournaments, or classes. Available programs are subject to change without notice and enrollment may be limited due to class sizes.
What type of Scholarships are Available? How do I Apply?
- 25% of Program Fee Scholarships: 25% of the program fee is covered by STOP. The remaining 75% of fees is covered by participant. STOP Application will be approved onsite at the time of registration. No advance approval is necessary, but a completed application is required. STOP funds will not be available after the program registration deadline date.
- Other Partial or Full Scholarships: Application may request a full or partial scholarship for program fees. Full scholarships will only be considered in extreme circumstances. STOP Application deadline will be two weeks prior to program registration deadline (as advertised) and/or start date of the program. STOP Applications must be submitted separately and prior to registration. Allow up to 10 business days for review and notification of application status. Once your application has either been approved, denied or another offer is presented, you will be contacted. After contact, you may complete the registration process. Applications will be reviewed on a regular, ongoing basis. If application is to assist with ongoing classes and/or programs that do not have a specified registration deadline, please submit your application as soon as possible. Registration cannot be completed without payment in full, whether it be STOP funds, participant payment and/or a combination of payment sources. STOP funds may not be available after the STOP application deadline and/or registration deadline. STOP funds are not guaranteed.
- Time-Sensitive Registrations: In the case of limited program/class sizes and/or time sensitive registrations, parent/guardian may pay fees in full at time of registration to guarantee participation. A STOP application may be submitted at that time and if approved, a household credit may be given
to offset the cost. STOP funds are not guaranteed
A completed Youth Scholarship (S.T.O.P) Application must be turned in to the West Side Recreation & Park District office prior to the program's registration deadline. Requests turned in to the District Office after a deadline has passed will be considered at a later date.
