Chautauqua Institution welcomes applications for family scholarships

Each season Chautauqua Institution offers opportunities for a few families with limited incomes, who have never been to Chautauqua in the past, to enjoy a first-time one-week Chautauqua experience. Funded through Chautauqua Foundation endowments, scholarships cover costs such as Institution gate passes, tuition for Special Studies classes, children’s activities (Children’s School or Boys’ and Girls’ Club) and housing rental. Awards require residency on the Chautauqua grounds for one full week.

Applications for the 2018 season will be accepted through April 1. There is no application fee. Family Scholarship Program awards will be determined by April 18, based on reviews of the programmatic and financial information outlined in the application. Approximately one month before the opening of the Chautauqua season, each family will submit a final plan of activities selected from the current season’s program.

Any family interested in obtaining a Family Scholarship Program application should contact Rindy Barmore at 357-6222 or rbarmore@chq.org.
