Tuition Assistance Program
Tuition Assistance and Scholarship Programs: Education Unlimited seeks to make our programs available to students regardless of their financial situation, where possible and as our funds allow. To that end, Education Unlimited sponsors a program that provides limited discretionary progam discounts to some families who demonstrate financial need as funds allow:
- The Education Unlimited Tuition Assistance Program provides partial tuition assistance awards to those who can demonstrate financial need. The largest awards will not exceed 50% of the program's total tuition; East Coast College Tour and CAPC Destination awards typically do not exceed 25% of the program cost. In most recent years EU has been able to designate nearly $100,000 in partial assistance awards each summer. The Tuition Assistance Program is the program under which most families have historically received aid awards from Education Unlimited. Tuition assistance is applicable only as a discount and only toward Education Unlimited programs and only for the Education Unlimited program originally applied for. All Tuition Assistance awards are solely at the discretion of Education Unlimited's Execuive Director.
- Deadlines: Applications received by May 1, 2013 will be reviewed in May in the order in which they were received, so it is to your benefit to apply early. For applicants that apply by the May 1st deadline, we will announce assistance decisions by June 1, 2013. We will continue to review Tuition Assistance applications throughout the summer, however, fewer funds may be available for Tuition Assistance later in the season. If you do not apply by May 1st, 2013 it may be only shortly before the camp session that you receive notification of our award decision.
- If you apply for tuition assistance within 3 days of submitting an application for camp and you receive an assistance award that you feel does not meet your financial need, if you notify us in writing within 10 days of receiving your assistance award that you still can't afford to come and need to cancel, all money paid on deposit for that camp will be refunded.
