The Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) is committed to making all of our programs, facilities, services and activities accessible to everyone, and does not want to deny access to activities due to their inability to pay. Please note the Scholarship Application and that some programs are free and some do require a small fee.
During the school year
The first step in the scholarship process is to contact the social worker at your child/children’s school. The social worker will provide you with the fee waiver form, which you will present at the BPRD office to register your child/children in your selected program(s).
