TOUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
York County students in grades 1-12 are eligible to participate. The purpose of the tour scholarship program is to provide an opportunity for York County schools to obtain the funding for the transportation needed for a field trip to tour the York County Resource Recovery Center which they would otherwise be unable to take due to lack of funding.
The Tour Scholarship provides for 100 percent of the cost of the school to obtain a school bus (non-charter) and driver specifically for a tour of the York County Resource Recovery Center. It is the responsibility of the scholarship recipient to make all necessary arrangements with the school bus company and to assume all liability for transportation of students to and from the Resource Recovery Center. No portion of the cost for a bus/driver may be passed on to the student. The Authority will reimburse the scholarship recipient within 30 days of the completion of the field trip. The recipient must submit an invoice to the Authority prior to the reimbursement.
Students in grades 1-12 are eligible for this scholarship. Applicants must represent a school in York County and must agree to complete a project in conjunction with participating in the field trip to the York County Resource Recovery Center. The project must promote environmental management of municipal solid waste and must be completed within the same school year as the field trip. A maximum of 60 students can be accommodated for a field trip.
A limited number of scholarships are awarded. First received will be first considered. Scholarship applications are accepted from September through December 1 of each year. Scholarships are awarded in December of each year and can be used anytime during the following calendar school year.
