This scholarship opportunity is being made available to any current or former Camp “I Am Me” camper who meets the FTTTF criteria, including being a burn survivor, have suffered severe frostbite, and/or have been treated in a Burn Unit for a soft tissue injury.

Additional Requirements

A scholarship will be awarded for a one-year period, July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023, to be applied toward tuition, fees, and other school related expenses.
