Angleton Parks & Recreation Scholarship Program
The City of Angleton Parks & Recreation Department believes that every Angleton resident should have the opportunity to take part in public recreational programs and classes, which foster development, promote health and wellness and increase cultural unity. The goal of the Angleton Parks & Recreation scholarship program is to provide opportunity to participate in parks & recreation programming by assisting low-income families and individuals and subsidizing costs associated with Angleton Parks & Recreation programs. The scholarship program establishes the eligibility, requirements, distribution, award level and guidelines that apply to all Angleton Parks & Recreation programs for which a fee is charged.
Scholarship forms are available online (PDF) or in person at the Recreation Center located at 1601 North Valderas Street.
Completed applications and supporting documents should be turned into Recreation Superintendent Geri Gonzales at the Angleton Recreation Center. For questions you can email Geri at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once all documentation has been received and verified, Recreation staff will review and process applications within 14 business days. Applicants will be notified by email of status of scholarship.
