Glen Ellyn Park District Scholarship Program

Everyone in our community should have access to Park District activities. And when it comes to kids and families registering for programs, money should not be a barrier. Because some residents are unable to participate due to financial hardship, we are proud to offer a scholarship program.

Scholarships assist low-income residents by providing full or partial funding for recreational and athletic programs. The program serves a wide range of individual and family needs.

Unfortunately, funds are sometimes limited. By donating to the scholarship program, you help enrich the lives of your neighbors in need. Your support may help a child attend camp, a senior stay healthy, a teen play travel soccer, and more. Help support the program by making a donation today.
