Financial Assistance

Eliot Institute Financial Assistance Application Click Here To Download Form

Financial aid is available for those who cannot cover the registration fees for an Eliot camp. You can request funds for up to the full amount of the camp, with the majority of our grants being a portion of the total cost.

 The deadline for financial assistance applications is two months prior to the start date of the camp you wish to attend. You will be notified of the amount of your grant at least one month before camp begins. At that point, if you feel you still cannot afford to attend camp, you may cancel and receive a refund of your deposit.

 As a nonprofit organization registered with the IRS, the process the committee uses to evaluate financial aid applications is open to public review. We need to be sure that we consider applications objectively, and that we are diligent in determining the financial need of each applicant. To maintain privacy and objectivity, the administrator will remove all identifying information from each application before it is submitted to the committee.

You are eligible to apply for financial assistance if you meet both of these income and net worth limits:

  • Your annual income is less than the Median Household Income for the State of Washington, which for 2022 is $76,687.
  • Your net worth is less than twice the Median Household Income for the State of Washington. For 2022, this figure is $153,374.

 Applicants are eligible for no more than one grant each year.

If your request for financial assistance is denied, you may appeal by submitting a letter and any supporting material to the administrator for review by the Eliot Board of Directors.

==> Had an amazing week in the Young Adult Program! It tied in really well with the theme of the speaker, while also being quite unique. The coordinators were so great and kept things very fun! We had tons of variety in the activities we did each day, and when we had group discussions they both contributed comments and thoughts as well which I found really amazing and have never experienced that in the program before so that was great!!!
