Scholarship Program

The Palatine Park District is committed to providing recreational services to all residents who wish to participate in Park District Programs.  Our Scholarship Program is intended to provide a reduced fee to residents who otherwise would not be able to participate in Park District recreation programs due to financial constraints. Eligibility is limited to residents within the Palatine Park District who request a waiver of fees and meet our scholarship guidelines.

The Scholarship Application packet includes our scholarship guidelines as well as a list of programs that are not available for scholarship funding.   Please fill the application out completely and include a brief letter if necessary to explain your current situation and any special circumstances that may apply.  In addition, you must include proof of residency, and a copy of your most recent Federal Income Tax Return (Form 1040 or 1040A) and corresponding W-2 or 1099 earnings summaries and three (3) of the most recent pay stubs from each wage earner.  Applicants who are exempt from filing a tax return will be required to provide verification of non-filing status.  Scholarship requests will be considered once all required documentation is received.  Participants will not be able to participate in programs until the request is processed and appropriate fees have been paid.
