Scholarships

BIAC has a limited number of partial scholarships available for those in need. These scholarships are issued to help survivors with the cost of one of our recreation programs. In order to ensure that as many people are able to attend a recreation program we follow these guidelines:

Priority will be given to:

  • Colorado residents
  • Survivors who are in services with us and are working with a case manager
  • First-time participants

Only 1 scholarship will be awarded to a participant per year

If you receive a scholarship for two consecutive years you will not be eligible for a scholarship for one year. You can then re-apply.
