First Tee – Northwest Arkansas wants to make sure that no one is turned away from our programming due to lack of funds.
Thank you for participating in First Tee – NWA programming! For 2020 we have updated our scholarship criteria. In order for your child to receive scholarships throughout the year for class they will need to meet the requirements listed below:
During the Winter Months (November-March) when we are holding classes in the indoor facility, we will only approve 50% of the scholarship due to the limited indoor space, longer wait lists, and to help cover expenses for the indoor facility. In order to receive 50% scholarship participants must attend 2 out of the 3 classes during a 3 week session or 3 out of the 4 classes during a 4 week session.
During the sessions we are outdoors (April-October), we will give 100% approved scholarship. We will evaluate the attendance throughout those months and determine if a participant can continue to receive 100% approved scholarship. Must attend 2 out of the 3 classes in a three week session or 3 out of 4 classes in a 4 week session.
We want every participant to have the opportunity to participate in our program. If you apply for a scholarship and you are approved you are registered for the class. With a limited number of participants in every class, we always have a wait list of participants that want to participate. Attendance is important if you are on scholarship and if you are not showing up, you have taken away a spot from a participant that could have made it to all classes. Throughout the year we will be monitoring participation for scholarship recipients. If participants that are on scholarship are not meeting requirements the percentage of the approved scholarship may change.
