The Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department reminds the community it is time to renew or apply for a Department scholarship.
The scholarship program is for qualifying Athens-Clarke County residents under the age of 18. Individuals with expired scholarships and new scholarship applicants must visit a Leisure Services Department facility office at least five business days prior to registering for a program. Scholarships must be applied for in person.
Scholarships are issued at 25%, 50%, and 75% levels. There is a $400 annual cap in scholarship funds per child.
Requirements for documentation include a recent utility bill (last 90 days), the most recent IRS Tax Form 1040 (with children listed), and a valid photo ID.
Those individuals who have not created an online registration account, may do so at www.accgov.com/myrec. This needs to be done prior to applying for the scholarship so that the scholarship can be credited to the account.
All scholarships expire December 31
