Our first summer, thanks completely to the generosity of the friends of Ci, 65% of our campers received a $300 scholarship allowing them to afford STEM camp. It was a great first summer, but as we looked to the future, the Lord has laid on our heart, a slightly different approach. We want to share this with our donors to see if the Lord would have you partner with us for Ci Scholarships.
We have created 6 different ways in which a family can help reduce their young person's tuition. If you are interested in learning more about them, explore our Tuition Reduction Program site. We want to give you an overview of the two which need your help: Scholarships & Financial Aid. The following is how they work:
In order for students to qualify for financial aid, they must complete at least one book report that is designed to better prepare both their head and their heart to gain the most out of their Ci experience.
Here is a story that illustrates why we believe in asking the Lord's people to help an academically gifted child to come to Ci so we can help equip them to bring glory to the Infinite One from whom all gifts come.
We received an email the other day from a mom of one of our campers. Her son is very intelligent and has lots of questions about astronomy. She said no one could give him solid Bible answers. So we gave him a call and talked for a good while. He seemed satisfied with the answers we gave to him. We encouraged him that Ci exists to provide a support network for young people who want to study STEM from a biblical worldview. It is so cool to see how the Lord is bringing together a unique group of campers, counselors and apologetics and STEM experts to encourage these young people in their academic pursuits while strengthening their faith.
