The Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate Sponsor A Scholar enrichment fund is a scholarship fund for scholars who participate in the BRMA program. The funds are available to support scholars who want to pursue extracurricular opportunities such as camps, lessons or teams. If there is an extracurricular opportunity that a scholar would like to pursue but they cannot afford the activity, BRMA will try to help.
The Scholarship Guidelines are as follows:
- For use by scholars actively participating in BRMA programming
- Used to fund “enrichment” needs such as summer camp tuition, lesson/class fees, sport participation fees, mental health counseling, or for purchase of equipment for sports, music, arts or other activity participation. Other potential uses may be approved on a case-by-case basis.
- General guidelines will limit each scholar’s use of Sponsor A Scholar Funds to $500 per year.
- BRMA prefers not to pay for the entire cost of activities, and we encourage parents and mentors to seek other sources of support including requesting other scholarships and making personal contributions to the cost of an activity.
