Minnesota Residents:
The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has accepted the St. Olaf Theater Camp as part of their 2019 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 theater camp during the summer of 2019. 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. Stipends made possible by this grant 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 of 2019.

Registration steps: 
1. Complete the St. Olaf Theater Camp Online Stipend Form.
2. Email and let us know you would like to apply for the stipend and have completed the online registration form.

4. Mail/email documentation of “C” or better grade in Fine Arts from the most recent grading period.

Note: Camp registration form, free/reduced lunch verification and most recent report card needs to be in the camp office before your camper’s name can be submitted to the Summer Academic Enrichment Program for approval.
