NGI Scholarship Info

NGI Scholarship Information
Through our New Generations Initiative (NGI), Pinewoods Camp supports the growth of the folk arts community by offering scholarships at each of the camp sessions held at Pinewoods. These scholarships are administered by our Program Providers [insert link] who organize and run the 18 weekend or week-long sessions held each year. The NGI scholarships are intended for young campers, between the ages of 15 and 30, who are new to our community, potential leaders or those with financial needs.
How it works
Pinewoods Camp provides scholarship funding to the Program Providers who help select scholarship recipients.  Program Providers may combine NGI scholarships with other funding sources to create full or half scholarships for each of their program sessions.
If you are interested in applying for an NGI scholarship, please contact the Program Provider to register for the session you’re interested in and to apply for scholarship. If selected as an NGI recipient, you will:
–       need to have a Sponsor (to answer questions prior to camp or help with registration. Program Providers can help with finding Sponsors, if needed.)
–       be assigned a Mentor at camp (to introduce you to the programs and other campers)
–       meet with Pinewood’s Executive Director during the camp session
–       write a Thank You letter within one month of attending camp
Recipients are encouraged to take full advantage of the classes and activities offered at the session they attend.
Sponsors and Mentors
If you are interested in being a Sponsor or Mentor, please contact the Program Provider for the session or individuals you are interested in.  For further information see 2017 NGI Sponsor and Mentor Guide.
