MN Office of Higher Education:
The Minnesota Office of Higher Education is pending funding for the St. Olaf Dance Workshop, Music Academy, OleChess Camp, and Theater Camp as part of their 2020 Summer Academic Enrichment Program. The Summer Academic Enrichment Program will provide stipends on a first-come, first-serve basis, to cover the direct cost for Minnesota students to attend the approved St. Olaf Camps during the summer of 2020.
If funding becomes available, applications will be accepted sometime in January or early February.
REMINDER: Registration form, free/reduced lunch verification and most recent report card need to be in the camp office before your camper’s application can be submitted to the Summer Academic Enrichment Program for approval.
Some community organizations offer academic summer camp funds to local students. Please check with your local groups: VFW, Lion’s Club, Jaycees, American Legion, to name a few.
Students must be residents of the state of Minnesota.
Students must be grades 3 – 11 and qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.
Students must have earned at least an overall “C” average or its equivalent for the most recently recorded academic term in the area of Fine Arts.
How is the stipend possible?
Stipends made possible by the MN Office of Higher Education grant, which will allow students from low-income families throughout the state to attend summer academic enrichment programs. Students will only be allowed to receive funds (up to $1000) to attend one enrichment program during the summer.
