Scholarships

BIAC has a limited number of scholarships available 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.
