In 2005, The Key Foundation, Inc. ("TKF") established the Diane P. Livoli Scholarship (the "Scholarship") to help enable young people to serve on Boy Scout Camp Staff and support its programming. The Scholarship provides funds to Camp staff members currently enrolled or who have intent to enroll in a college, university, trade or other higher learning program, to help defray costs associated with their education.
It is hoped that the individuals selected for the Scholarship will set high standards of leadership and achievement as staff members. It is also expected that one of the primary goals of each scholarship recipient will be to make each Camp program special.
The Livoli family has established within TKF a designated fund to support the Scholarship. Each year this designated fund may provide financial support to certain Camp staff members with tuition obligations. It is hoped this Scholarship will allow for the brightest and the best to devote their time and energy to supporting Scouting programs.
Only completed Scholarship applications received by the deadline will be considered. Applications for this Scholarship award are accepted until November 30. Applicants will be informed after a determination has been made by the scholarship committee. The funds for any Camp staff members receiving a Scholarship will only be issued provided that the staff member is in good standing with their local Scout council.
A typical award is between $500 and $1,000. An application is no guarantee of an award. Awards are granted at the sole discretion of TKF's Scholarship Review Committee. Applicants are given awards based on need, merit, and contribution to the Scouting program.
Individuals who have received this award in the past are welcome to reapply.
A minimum of two letters of recommendation must accompany this application. Recommendations should be sealed in an envelope with the recommender's' signature over the seal. Please choose 2 people from this list:
- A current or former senior staff member or supervisor of the camp you worked at this summer.
- A teacher or college counselor addressing your character and academic aptitude.
- A parent discussing your financial need and character.
