Apply For A POISE Scholarship

Step 1: Determine Child’s Fit At Camp

The first step in applying for a POISE scholarship is to complete the regular intake/application process with one of our participating camp programs:


Camp Akeela
Aspire Summer Camp (formerly known as MGH YouthCare)

Once your family has determined that the camp is the best fit for your child – and your camper has been accepted into the camp program – the camp directors will let us know and direct you back here to complete the POISE Scholarship Application. (Aspire applicants will be asked to complete a different financial aid application instead of POISE’s.)

Step 2: Submit POISE Financial Aid Materials

Applicants are asked to complete a basic financial aid form and provide supporting documents (such as tax returns and pay stubs). The POISE scholarship committee will review completed applications in the order in which they are received.
