A big thank you to those organizations and businesses that have donated!
Island County Public Health (lead agency) and South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation (fiscal sponsor) have partnered along with the South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District, Coupeville School District and Compass Health to provide scholarships to children and youth who's families may not be able to afford registration costs of organized physical activities. Funds for these scholarships have been donated by various organizations in Island County, most recently by The Goosefoot Community Fund.
HIYI Scholarships can be requested to cover registration fees, equipment vouchers, and other expenses that are a barrier to a child/youth pursuing an organized physical activity anywhere throughout Island County. The HIYI Scholarship Program provides assistance to children and youth from low income families who are not currently being served by existing scholarship or fee waiver programs.
There is a limit to one scholarship per quarter per applicant for a maximum amount of $150, $300 yearly maximum. Individuals may apply for consecutive quarters. Scholarships are limited to individuals only. Groups and organizations are not eligible to apply.
