Gwinnett Youth and Senior Citizen Scholarship Fund
The Gwinnett Youth and Senior Citizen Scholarship Fund was created by Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation in 2001 to assure that all children and senior citizens have the opportunity to participate in recreational and athletic activities in Gwinnett County. Gwinnett's youth and senior citizens who cannot afford to attend summer camps, swim lessons, and recreational classes can now do so thanks to funds raised through the Gwinnett Parks Foundation Corporate Challenge and partnerships with other groups, companies and organizations.

Thanks to Gwinnett's business leaders and the Gwinnett Parks Foundation, now everyone has an opportunity to experience all the wonderful programs Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation has to offer. This fund has helped hundreds of Gwinnett County youth and seniors experience summer camps, recreational activities, and sport offerings.

To apply for the scholarship, please print the appropriate scholarship application form and follow the directions listed on the form.
