Tuition Assistance

Camp Levine Tuition Assistance

Camp Levine Tuition Assistance is part of Levine’s Tuition Assistance program.

Financial assistance is entirely need-based; award decisions are based on Levine’s ability to support a percentage of a family’s financial need. Levine intends to offer aid to every eligible student who qualifies. However, it is common for the financial need of the community to exceed the organization’s available resources. We encourage all students who feel they may qualify for assistance to apply! 

Levine complies in all its activities, programs, and policies, with all applicable laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination on any basis protected by law.

If you feel you qualify for tuition assistance support, please apply by completing our Tuition Assistance Application. All families, current and new, must apply to be considered. To determine if you qualify, please view the Camp Levine Tuition Assistance scale below.

Eligibility

Camp Levine’s sliding scale model uses federal standards to determine if you qualify for Tuition Assistance. The scale helps ensure funds are distributed fairly to students who demonstrate the most financial need.

How does the scale work?
  • First, determine your household size. Your household size includes all the adults and children who live in your home.
    • Example: mom + dad + grandma + two children = 5
  • Next, determine your household income. This is income earned by all adults in the household. If you are married and file separately, you must include total income for you and your spouse.
    • Example: For three adults residing in the same household, you will add each individual income: $55,000 + $15,000 + $5,000 = $75,000 
  • Last, find your household size and then follow that line across the grid until you find the bracket where your total household income falls. At the bottom of that column, you will find the maximum potential reduction for which you may qualify.
    • Example: A family of five, with a household income of $80,000 may be eligible for the maximum discount offered for Camp Levine.
