Registration FAQ


STARS strives to keep our programs affordable, but recognizes that some may need additional support to access our programs.  Our scholarships are based solely on financial need and only complete applications will be considered.

To be considered for a scholarship, your application must be completed and submitted to STARS by June 1st or December 1st (depending on the season). Please use the resources below to submit your paperwork electronically. The “Scholarship Process” document is a great resource to ensure this is an easy process.

You will be informed of your application status after the scholarship deadline, which are June 1st or December 1st (depending on the season). Please note, most scholarships are partial scholarships while full scholarships are reserved for those with significant needs. In addition, all scholarships require a $25 processing fee.
