Executive Director of Sarah Heinz House 1986-2013
To provide scholarship support and enable opportunity for youth and/or teen participation in Sarah Heinz House membership or additional Sarah Heinz House programs.
School-aged Youth and Teens who are registered or applying for SHH Membership or programs. All current SHH members must be in “good standing”, or recommended by majority of Program Staff; good standing could be affected by Attendance or Disciplinary issues.
Confidentiality and Discretion Clause:
Scholarship Awards and Amounts should be kept private and confidential. This includes Scholarship Denials. If a youth participant receives (or does not receive) scholarship support, the participant and family agree to keep that information private and confidential, except for the necessary parties involved (Staff, Selection Committee, or Mr. Pittman).
Sarah Heinz House will not publicly share specific individual scholarship awards or amounts, only the summary financial figures and number of youth participants who benefit from the scholarship fund.
Coverage / Continuation
Scholarship Award to an individual may cover up to 90% of program cost to the returning member recipient (not real cost to SHH), and up to 50% of program cost to new member or nonmember applicant. In other words, a returning member family will still incur at least 10% of program cost, and a new applicant family will incur at least 50% of the cost. Program Year runs September through August. Recipients from prior program years are eligible to re-apply in subsequent program years (with no promise of renewal).
Prior recipients from same program year are eligible for renewal or continuation of scholarship within same program year, if in good standing (but not guaranteed). Possible additional member contribution or effort (“give back”) may be requested on subsequent rounds of support (possible higher financial contribution by family, or additional volunteerism, “helping out”, etc.).
Renewal forms for each trimester, or for reminder of Program Year, are not required. Potential for renewal/continuation of scholarship shall be based upon evaluation (including input from Program Staff) for subsequent trimester(s), or camp session(s) in that same program year (through August).
Loss of scholarship is possible, due to poor attendance, attitude, or behavior, or if unwilling to “help out” when requested; strong input and feedback will be solicited from Program Staff in these cases.
