Healthy Island Youth Initiative (HIYI) Physical Activity Scholarship

 

Deadline for current scholarship applications is June 9, 2017


Background

Island County Public Health (lead agency) and  South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation (fiscal agency) have partnered along with the North Whidbey Park and Recreation District, South Whidbey Parks and Recreation District and Coupeville School District to provide scholarships to children and youth to encourage them to be physically active. Funds for these scholarships have been donated by various organizations in Island County.

 

Purpose

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 goal of offering HIYI scholarships is to provide confidential support to Island County children and youth who, without this financial assistance, would not be able to participate in a physical activity that meets their interests. 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. The HIYI Scholarship Program provides opportunities for area youth to participate in sports and other physical activities and recognizes the important physical, mental, and character-building benefits such programs provide. 

 
 
 

Eligibility

There is a limit to one scholarship per quarter per individual for a maximum amount of $150. Individuals may apply for consecutive quarters. Scholarships are limited to individuals only. Groups and organizations are not eligible to apply.
