Phoenix World Burn Congress Attendee Scholarship

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to fill out a separate application for each person?

No, please include everyone in your family applying for the scholarship on the same application. 

Do you provide scholarships to Phoenix UBelong Youth and Teens?

Yes, scholarship awards are available for children and teens between the ages of 7-17. Please note that the Phoenix UBelong Youth and Teen program reached capacity quickly last year and we anticipate it will reach capacity again this year. If you plan to register your child for Phoenix UBelong, we suggest you secure your registration early on/prior to hearing about your scholarship status to secure your child's registration to the program. Scholarships are not available for childcare services.

When can I apply?

Applications will be open from April 2, 2018 - June 1, 2018.

When is the application due?

Final deadline for the 2018 Phoenix World Burn Congress George Pessotti Scholarship Fund is June 1, 2018.

When will I be notified if I receive a scholarship?

The Phoenix Society will review all applications following the deadline. We will notify you as soon as possible regarding the status of your application.

What financial information is needed?

We ask that you include your estimated annual household income and a brief explanation of any other circumstances that are contributing to your financial need. Additionally, the end of the application will help you identify the approximate financial assistance you are requesting from the Phoenix Society based on your needs. Being able to contribute anything financially, even a small portion, will increase your score.    

How are you chosen, what can I do to better my odds?

Priority is given to first time applicants. Having a referral or letter of recommendation from a healthcare provider and also demonstrating your motivation to attend Phoenix WBC by covering some of the cost on your own will increase your chances of being offered a scholarship. However, this does not guarantee scholarship.

Where else can I go to raise money to attend?

Many other organizations, including hospitals, burn camps, burn foundations and firefighter organizations also have scholarships to Phoenix WBC available. You can also look into grant or fundraising options.
