The First Tee of Greater Washington, DC will never turn a child away from Life Skills Experience Programs for the inability to pay. We work with families so their child may participate in our programs. We do, however, ask that if you are able to pay a portion of any of the costs that you do so. By receiving financial assistance, you will be subject to our attendance policy (see below). Please understand that as a scholarship participant you and your child may be asked to write thank you letters to donors, submit a story or to participate in fundraising events.
We offer full scholarships for Active Duty US Military families as well as young people who qualify for Federal Free or Reduced lunch at school. If you are Active Duty US Military, make sure you check off ‘Are you a Military Family?’ when creating an account. For those who receive Federal Free or Reduced lunch please go through the process below.
