Is there a way to get a scholarship for SLS?
Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not believe there is a scholarship for SLS. You must make all of the payments on your own.
However, you could hold community fundraisers, which I intend to do, such as raffle drawings, selling food, etc. I'm sure the locals would be more than happy to assist with you attending a fairly prestigious summer program.
Search around for other assistance as well. You might be surprised who would provide you with funds.
I contacted admissions last year and received a scholarship for financial reasons however I believe its case by case. Just contact admissions and talk to them directly about your situation
You could also ask for sponsorships, i.e: the local paper, your dentist, doctor, ortho, etc...
You can also try your local American Legion, VFW, Police FOP, and the Mason's.
Also, try you ROA locally. They often are extremely happy to assist the future leaders and officiers of America. Writing a letter and your intent to why you want to attend SLS and agreeing to share your experience afterwards is received well. Good luck!
