They want to help you keep your child active.

Island County Public Health, in conjunction with other local organizations, is offering “Healthy Island Youth Initiative Physical Activity Scholarships” to Whidbey student/athletes in need.

The scholarships, which can be requested to cover things such as registration fees and equipment vouchers, are intended to provide confidential support to youth who might otherwise be unable to participate in physical activities.

They are available to students eligible for free or reduced lunch.

Funds have been donated by the Goosefoot Foundation, Island Thrift, the South Whidbey Parks and Aquatic Foundation, and Whidbey Telecom.

There is a limit of one scholarship per quarter per individual ($200), with a maximum amount of $500 per year.

Individuals may apply for consecutive quarters, but priority is given to new applicants.

To be eligible, a student must be a primary resident of Island County and commit to attend a minimum of 80% of scheduled practices and games/lessons.

No double-dipping, as those already being served by an existing scholarship or fee waiver program that covers the full cost of participation are not eligible.

If you are eligible for free school lunch, you can receive 100% towards registration/equipment fees.

Those who receive reduced school lunch are eligible to receive 50% towards their fees.
