Summer Enrichment Scholarship Program General Information
Assistance League of Bellingham (ALB) raises funds to pay for summer scholarships for high school (grades 9-11 only) and middle school students (grades 6-8) who attend public schools in Whatcom County, including home-schooled students with a Whatcom public school affiliation. The student’s grade level at the time of the application determines whether the applicant is considered a middle school or a high school student.
Students who attend private schools and students who are related to a member of Assistance League of Bellingham are not eligible.
Summer programs are chosen by the students, not ALB. ALB scholarships can be used for a variety of accredited summer camps or programs (e.g., college prep, music, art, dance, debate, leadership, chess, science, outdoor skills, etc.) ALB does not fund religious or sports-centered camps, programs in foreign countries, or private lessons. ALB does not pay for transportation costs, only tuition and fees. Payment is made out to the camp or program, not an individual. Scholarships are awarded on merit and are not need-based. Students do not need to know which program they plan to attend when they apply.
