Summer Staff Scholarships
Staff Scholarship Information
Almost all Adventist universities and colleges offer some sort of scholarship for summer camp staff. Does yours?
Summer camp scholarship will be based on $190 per week for a maximum of 13 weeks or $2,470. Student Financial Services will determine the amount of the scholarship based on the information received from camp directors in time for financial clearance. This scholarship is available to incoming freshman, current students, and transfer students.
Southern Adventist University
You will receive $170 per full week worked, with a scholarship cap of $2,000 (Your camp director must submit the number of weeks you will work based on your camp contract to Enrollment Services.)
At the end of each summer, Southern will contact your employing organization to verify that you met your contractual obligations. If you participate in multiple summer ministries, you’re eligible to receive only one of the summer ministry scholarships—whichever is larger.
