Description:

When following a road map, sometimes you need special tools to guide the way! Too often, the best tools can be just out of reach for one reason or another. Milemarkers is proud to announce the Compass Scholarship program. The Compass Scholarship will provide financial assistance to families to cover the cost of necessary equipment, supplies or materials that are recommended by a treatment team. The compass scholarship will be available to any family/client receiving any service at Milemarkers.

Mission:

The mission of the Compass Scholarship program is to ensure that financial constraints do not limit a child’s endless potential for success, by providing funding for the equipment and supplies needed on the road to success. Through the Compass scholarship, recipients will gain access to necessary equipment and materials that are not covered by traditional sources such a medical or state insurance programs.

Program Details:

To receive a compass scholarship, a child/family will need to be referred by a member of their treatment team. In order to be eligible, the client must receive any service through Milemarkers, at any location. The application must be filled out by a treatment team member and submitted to the board by the quarterly due date (Jan 15, April 15, July 15, Oct 15). Applications will be reviewed, and funds will be awarded on a quarterly basis. Funding may be awarded in full, or partially depending on the number of applications received and funds available. Equipment that can be covered by alternative pay sources such as medical or state insurance programs cannot be funded through a Compass scholarship.  When a family is awarded the scholarship, funds will be used to purchase the recommended equipment directly, and the equipment will be presented to the family. The Compass Scholarship will be funded through community outreach and fundraising efforts in partnership with Somewhere Out of the Box DBA Milemarkers.

Applications can be mailed or turned into Milemarkers, Attn: Bre Synder, 1515 N. Lake Havasu Ave #100, Lake Havasu City, AZ 86404 or emailed to breanna@milemarkers.us
