Apply for assistance or let us know that you're willing to help a child in need
ActivStars believes that we can best help children develop life skills by working within the community. This often means providing means and access to those who would not normally have it. We are working diligently to provide more children with opportunities and ensure our youth programs are always offered at an affordable cost.
However, there are times when a child cannot participate due to extreme financial difficulties. Our mission is to help all children, so we're currently establishing relationships and partnerships with many communities to create scholarships for children facing these hardships. As these come available, we review applications and information provided.
How It Works
When awarded, Scholarships are provided for one semester per student per year. You may always apply for consideration after this period.
Application acceptance begins one week before the start date of any class and lasts through the third week of class. After this date, applications are closed for the semester.
Please ensure that all information is filled out and legible where applicable. Be sure to provide any additional forms or information as necessary. Unfortunately, we cannot process incomplete applications.
Submit the application to us via Mail or Fax

Scholarship Processing Information
Scholarships are reviewed for the following information:
- Eligibility, including if a previous award was granted
- Review of application and supporting documentation
- Financial qualification review
- Scholarship availability, providing assistance on a first come, first served basis.
Please allow 10 business days to process and be notified if a scholarship has been granted or denied
When scholarships are available, and a student is approved, ActivStars will contact you directly using the contact information you provide. The scholarship will only cover weekly class fees. So, you may need to provide funds for registration, testing or tryouts, uniforms, equipment, or fees for special events.
If approved, you will be notified via email and will be required to print off the notification letter to bring to class and show the instructor or class secretary.
