Financial Aid Application Process

Financial aid applications can be submitted online or by mail to the Ginny Levine Financial Aid Fund (GLF) Committee Chairperson, whose name and contact information will be listed in the Star Island Conferences brochure, on the Star Island website (starisland.org), and on the All Star II Financial Aid Application. Questions about the financial aid process can be directed to the GLF Committee Chairperson. The Chairperson is:

Suzy Binzel
17001 60th St
Bristol WI 53104
(262) 857-7725

Online applications should be completed only after registration for the All Star II conference has been completed and you have been informed of your acceptance. Application via the online form is strongly encouraged. If you are unable to complete the online application, a paper application may be mailed to the address of the Ginny Levine Chairperson. Please note that you must have received notice of acceptance to the conference before the application for financial aid can be processed. All applications will be reviewed for financial aid consideration as they are received and as available funds permit. The room and board deposit is not reimbursable and is therefore not typically part of a GLF award.

The Chairperson will notify applicants that their applications were received (via email or phone call) and share the applications with the committee members only. The GLF Committee will discuss the accumulated requests and decide upon the allocation of budgeted funds by April 15. All GLF applicants will be notified of their award by email, or by ground mail if a paper application was mailed, on or around April 15. Applications for financial aid that are received after that date will be considered based on remaining funds. We provide assistance to as many applicants as we can but funds are limited.

On the Island, the All Star II Conference treasurer will pay the appropriate sum to the hotel, which will credit the correct amount to recipients’ bills.

You may also apply to the Star Island Corporation for financial assistance, but if you are offered financial aid from both sources, you may accept only one of the awards.
