Whether running the bases or learning ballet, the City of Arlington wants its youth to be able to enjoy the wide variety of sports and recreational programming offered In The American Dream City.

The Build A Dream Scholarship Program is a scholarship program for children, ages four months to 16 years of age, to register for many Arlington Parks and Recreation Department's youth programs.

Eligibility is based upon federal income guidelines and is available to Arlington residents only. Due to limited funding, scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. This scholarship can not be combined with any other scholarship.

Visit and complete an application. If funding is still available, you will be contacted to make an appointment to finalize your application, which includes a $5 application fee. Income verification and registration for classes will be required at the time of application approval. Up to $125 will be awarded per child.

The application link will be available July 1, 2018.
