Application for Scholarship
Live Like Jake Foundation, Inc. was created by Keri and Roarke Morrison in honor of their son, Jake Morrison, who passed away as the result of a tragic drowning accident. The Foundation’s mission is to promote childhood drowning awareness and water safety. In order to accomplish this, we encourage self-rescue swim lessons. We try to help minimize the cost of the lessons for those in financial need by granting scholarships. Please note these scholarships are for families that truly cannot afford the lessons.
- Assistance is granted based on financial need. We consider household income and number of legal dependents as the primary criteria. While we understand that monthly expenses can be extensive, it is impossible to base scholarship awards on each individual budget.
- We believe that a sense of ownership is developed if the participant contributes to the cost of his/her involvement. Therefore, scholarship recipients may pay a percentage of the program fees.
- Scholarships are granted for one session for up to 6 weeks of lessons. Upon expiration, the recipient must reapply. The original scholarship application information is valid for 6 months after original approval.
