Financial Grant Application
If you have trouble filling out the form, please send us an e-mail at SICFinAidFormHelp@gmail.com.
Please consider the following when applying for Star Island Financial Grants
- Applicants may receive both a Star Island financial grant and a Star Island discount (if applicable).
- Financial grant awards typically will only cover part of room and board, not the full amount. Also, they do not cover any programming fees required by the conference.
- Individuals and families who are eligible for one of our discounts may also apply for financial grants.
- The total amounts given out in financial grants are dependent upon the number of approved applicants.
- Financial grant applicants must already have registered for the conference. If paying the registration fees and deposit upfront presents a hardship, exceptions can be made. Please contact the Island Registrar, firstname.lastname@example.org
