Program Announcements

  • Appalachian Anatomy and Physiology Camps-Scholarship

    Posted by Jennifer Osborne at 3/24/2017

    Appalachian Anatomy and Physiology Camps in Boone this summer is offering scholarships to attend. The total awarded per family will depend on the number of requests received. Historically we have been able to offer in the range of $350- $500, occasionally higher. 

    Here is the process to request a partial scholarship: 

    1) Please register for Anatomy and Physiology Camp now and pay the $250 deposit. Choose your session at http://conferences-camps.appstate.edu/youth-camps
    2) Student: Please send a statement explaining why you want to attend the camp, and what you hope to gain. This should be your own words. Email is fine. 
    3) Parent/Guardian: Please write a brief statement stating financial need, including how much aid you are requesting.
    4) Parent/Guardian: Please speak to a school counselor, teacher or administrator. Ask the school professional to submit a statement verifying family financial need, as well as what benefit this camp will have for the student. The prospective camper does not need to be an 'A' student, but should show strong interest in the sciences.

    Statements should be emailed to reddickct@appstate.edu with the camper name as the subject. You can also mail statements to A&P CAMP, ASU Box 32042 Boone NC 28608

    Awards will be offered between April 15 and May 15. If you register for camp and do not receive a scholarship that meets your needs, you may request a full refund of your deposit.
