The Camp Harbor View Scholarship

kids on college day

All LITs are eligible and encouraged to apply in their third year of the program for the CHV Scholarship — offering up to $10,000 per year for four years of post-secondary education. CHV also offers a bridge stipend to provide financial support for additional expenses related to college or trades program enrollment. In order to qualify for scholarship funding, applicants must:

  • Be currently enrolled in the LIT program at Camp Harbor View
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5; or GED equivalent
  • Show acceptance and enrollment in an accredited post-secondary educational degree. Two-year, four-year, technical, and trade pathways will all be considered. 

The Camp Harbor View scholarship made my college degree possible. Having CHV support you for not just one but two years at a time helps eliminate the ‘what if’s’ and boost your confidence for the next following semester.
