Online Summer Camps 2021 Bursary Applications

 

Thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters, we are able to offer bursaries to subsidize program fees. Your information will be treated with complete confidentiality. To allow our programs to be accessible to as many youth as possible, Geering Up will be offering bursaries to youth with a financial need. We are currently offering bursaries up to 90% and ask that parents/guardians please apply for what their current needs are. We understand that these are unprecedented and financially difficult times for many families. As such, if you require financial assistance for your child to attend our programs, please consider applying to our bursary program below.

How to Apply for a Bursary:

Applying for a Geering Up Bursary is a three step process:

  1. Please review the camp options for Elementary Online/CodeMakers Camps HERE or High School Online Courses HERE
  2. Complete the application form below, indicating your needs.
  3. We will receive your application, review it, and will email you with its status within 5 business days.
    Note: If you see the confirmation message on the webpage after hitting submit, we have received your application. You will not receive an email confirmation for your application.
  4. If you are successful, register for the applicable program, using the coupon code via our Summer Camps 2021 Registration links below.

Note: Please only fill out one form for each child
 

 
If you are concerned about programs filling up, and have the ability to do so, you may register beforehand. If your application is successful, we can apply the coupon code retroactively. This will refund the quantity of the bursary to your credit card. However, we recommend that you apply for bursaries first before registering for program.

Please note: As there are a limited number of bursaries, registering for a program does not guarantee a bursary for your child.

Bursary Application Form

We encourage you to apply for bursaries as early as possible! Applications open alongside Summer Camp Registration on March 1, 2021 and will remain open until the total number of bursaries have been distributed.

Please note that there are a limited number of bursaries available so applying early is strongly recommended.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our staff member Kale at kale.gosen@ubc.ca.
