Juggling extracurricular activities while trying to finish high school and keep up a certain GPA is definitely difficult. It requires a lot of effort and proper time management on the student’s part. There are times when students drop the extracurricular activities altogether to focus on their academics to get their GPA up for their college education. Meanwhile, there are also students who put more effort into their extracurricular activities like sports as it will help them get a scholarship in their dream degree program and help them not mind much of the financial aspect while finishing their bachelor degree in college.
However, these two scenarios aren’t the only possible scenarios for a high school student to see as their future in college. It is still possible to get a college education or finish your bachelor degree all while studying full time and without giving up the extracurricular and academics. There’s even a chance that you can do both and still qualify for a scholarship. If you’re a high school student who acts as a camp counselor and is looking for a scholarship or a way to save money for your degree program, here is a perfect scholarship for you: the Augustana Camp Scholarship.
The recipients of the Augustana Camp Scholarship program will be able to receive a $500 scholarship every two semesters. That means they receive $250 every semester. This is possible if you are a camp counselor or even someone who is stationed in other related camp positions during a specific period of time for middle or high school Lutheran camps. These Lutheran camps have to be located in places like Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. Those who wish to apply should already have a position in the camp even before the camp starts. In addition to that, the camp should also be completed by the continuing student in good standing and work at the camp for a minimum of six weeks.
The application form for the scholarship should be completed before the camp starts but after the student has received the position already. The application form also requires you to get your camp director to fill up the part wherein they will state the period of your work commitment and sign it.
