The Chelsea Piers Scholarship Fund evaluates applications three times a year: once for the Field House Fall youth class semester, once for the Spring youth class semester, and once for the 11-week summer camp semester. CPSF operates on a Rolling Admissions basis. Only the FIRST 80-100 completed applications are reviewed. For the youth class semesters, only the first 80 completed applications will be considered. For the Summer Camp, only the first 100 completed applications are reviewed. Once this number of applications has been received, additional applications will be placed on a waiting list. Please note that each application process begins approximately 3 months before the programming starts.
