New Approach to Scholarships

Ci Scholarship Program

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:

Scholarships

  • designed to encourage & reward a student for taking extra steps to prepare for Ci
  • earn up to $150
Financial Aid
  • designed to assist families whose student could not attend Ci due to limited finances
  • household income information is required
  • receive up to $150, requires the student to earn at least $50 in scholarship

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. 

If you like what we are doing and the Lord burdens your heart to partner with us, please consider a gift to our Ci Scholarship Fund. You can donate securely using PayPal. Designate your donation to [email protected] which is registered with PayPal or use this secure donation link. If you would prefer to send a check, make it out to "Camp Infinity" and mail to 122 Montverde Drive, Greenville SC 29609. Your entire donation will be applied to help financially needy families send their child to Ci. Camp Infinity is a registered 501c3 with the IRS.
