Camp Scholarships Available
The Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor is pleased to announce the availability of needs-based scholarships for Jewish summer camp participation for the summer of 2019. Thanks to the generosity of donors to the 2018 Annual Community Campaign, the Federation board approved an increased allocation to Jewish summer camp scholarships in recognition of the significant impact a Jewish summer camp experience has on life-long Jewish engagement. Jewish Family Services (JFS) manages the scholarship application process on behalf of the Jewish Federation. Deadline for application is April 1. For questions or to apply, contact Christine Taylor at JFS, (734) 769-0209.
- You may apply for need-based financial aid by mail or in person with Jewish Family Services.
2245 S. State St. Suite 200
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
- For the current financial Aid please check back later.
*You must be registered for camp with a paid deposit before you can apply for financial aid.
We are committed to making sure that the JCC’s programs are available to all members of the community. The JCC has scholarship assistance available to help offset the costs of Camp. Our agency partners with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment in order to maintain objectivity and confidentiality throughout the financial aid process. Families interested in financial aid for the 2019 summer should complete an online application, and submit the necessary supporting documentation at online.factsmgt.com/aid no later than March 1, 2019.
Note: in some cases, such as families from overseas or those receiving subsidies or scholarships from other sources, additional documentation may be requested. See below for more information.
Criteria for awarding scholarships for Early Childhood and/or Camp
- The JCC uses the Federal Poverty Guidelines and Federal Poverty Level (FPL), updated each year, as the baseline for determining financial aid. Applicant AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) must be at or below 250% FPL to qualify, although we will take extenuating circumstances into account.
- The guidelines for awards are as follows:
- AGI at 200-250% FPL = 10% discount
- AGI at 150-200% FPL = 15% discount
- AGI below 150% FPL = 20% discount
- The goal of the financial aid policy is to provide aid to all applicants with demonstrated need. Therefore, these percentages will be adjusted, as needed, so the total value of scholarships fits within the funds available for scholarships. If the total is x% higher than the available funds, scholarships will reduced by the same x% across the board.
- Federal Tax Returns: All signed copies of the most recent Federal Tax returns and attached schedules are acceptable.
- Foreign Tax Returns: If you or your spouse filed a foreign tax return you must submit a signed copy of the most recent returns.
- Documentation of any other sources of financial assistance. (for example: a statement from the University of Michigan financial aid office with the amount of any childcare subsidy awarded, documentation of a Jewish Family Services camp scholarship.)
