Staff Scholarship Information

Almost all Adventist universities and colleges offer some sort of scholarship for summer camp staff. Does yours?

All Academies vary in matching scholarship, so for academy scholarship information see your local Finance Officer at the academy of your attendance.

Southern Adventist University

Summer Camp Scholarship

You will receive $170 per full week worked, with a scholarship cap of $2,000 (Your camp director must submit the number of weeks you will work based on your camp contract to Enrollment Services.)

At the end of each summer, Southern will contact your employing organization to verify that you met your contractual obligations. If you participate in multiple summer ministries, you’re eligible to receive only one of the summer ministry scholarships—whichever is larger.
