Financial Assistance


Jimmy John’s Youth Scholarship Program 

Because some residents are unable to participate in recreation programs due to economic hardship, the Champaign Park District offers scholarships to reduce certain fees and charges. Jimmy John’s Youth Scholarship Program applicants are not guaranteed fund availability, program registration or choice of program location. Early applications are given priority. Need is the primary criterion upon which scholarship applicants are considered. Questions: 398-2550.

CPD & CUSR Scholarship Forms will be used by any applicant who wants financial help with programs occurring between May 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021.  Page 3 is for each child requesting assistance, so print multiple copies if needed:  

If a participant would like to apply for more programs than space allowed on the form, please use the following form for additional program:

If you would like to submit your completed scholarship application with the required documents by email, please send them to tom.gilbert@champaignparks.org.
