Scholarship Program


The Corte Madera Parks and Recreation Scholarship program offers scholarship opportunities to low-and moderate-income families in order for individuals to participate in programming offered through the Department. The Town is committed to providing quality, affordable recreation programs for everyone to enjoy.

Funding is limited and we encourage applicants to return all forms with all necessary documents. Scholarships can be submitted at any time, but funding will be allocated in May for summer programs and in August for all activities during the school year.

Youth scholarships will be allocated up to $300 max per person or $600 max per family per year. Adult scholarships will be allocated at a flat rate of $100 per individual per year. Funds do not cover materials or supplies paid directly to an instructor. Youth will receive 80% of available funds while adults will receive 20%.
