If you believe you qualify for a discount that has not been applied to your purchase, or if you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us at projectfun@digipen.edu.

Refer a Friend

Receiving a discount on an upcoming ProjectFUN workshop is as simple as referring a friend!

Log in to your account and fill out the Refer a Friend: Summer Workshops form to recommend us to your friends.  When they register with the email you used, you will automatically receive a coupon code.  Alternately, both you and your friend can email us at projectfun@digipen.edu to confirm the referral.

To qualify, referrals must:

a) not have previously enrolled in a ProjectFUN program;

b) not be a member of your immediate family; and

c) must not list you as a referral themselves.

There is no limit to the number of families that you can refer, and there is no time limit between when you make the referral and when your friend makes a Summer Workshops purchase. 

Scholarships

Each year, DigiPen Institute of Technology offers a limited number of need-based scholarships to students who may not otherwise be able to attend a ProjectFUN program. See below for more information!

Scholarships, either full or partial, are awarded to workshop attendees based on their financial need.  In order to offer as many opportunities to students as possible, each student may only be considered for one workshop scholarship per season.

Eligibility for need-based scholarships is based on the following guidelines, including household size (all adults and children living in a single household) and income standards. However, falling within these guidelines does not guarantee a scholarship. 

Also, if a scholarship applicant does not fall within these guidelines but can prove an additional financial hardship or special circumstances, the scholarship committee will take this into consideration and may grant a scholarship.

 

Total Household Size

Maximum Household Income

2 $34,000
3 $42,000
4 $50,000
5 $58,000
6 $66,000
7 $67,000
8 $69,000
9 $70,000
10 $72,000

Summer Programs Registration Policies

What happens if your summer plans change? Please see below for information regarding cancellations, transfers, waitlists and withdrawals.

Workshop Cancellation

If a Summer Workshop is canceled for any reason, you will be notified no later than 14 days before the workshop’s start date. You then have the option of selecting a different workshop, or being refunded the full amount.

Transferring Workshops

Transferring into a different workshop is allowed as long as there is space in the new course. Transferring into a more expensive workshop requires you to pay the difference, but transferring into a less expensive workshop will refund the difference.  There are no fees.  Transfers must be processed by our admin team, please email projectfun@digipen.edu or call Monday- Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Waitlist 

Workshops at capacity have an available waitlist. This waitlist runs on a first-come, first-serve basis. If space becomes available, an email is automatically sent out to all families on the waitlist, and registration is open for that workshop.  Parents may then register online as usual, or contact our office during business hours for a transfer. Once the space has been claimed, the waitlist is reactivated.

Withdrawal

Parents can withdraw their student from a ProjectFUN Summer Workshop by April 30, 2018 to receive tuition refunded minus the non-refundable deposit. Parents who withdraw their student from a ProjectFUN course or workshop after April 30, 2018 will receive no refund for fees paid.

After a withdrawal, non-refundable funds will be held on your account and applicable on workshops until registration closes for the following summer (August 2019 for Summer 2018 workshops).

Tax Breaks

If your student is under the age of 13, you may be eligible to count a ProjectFUN Summer Workshop as an expense toward the Child and Dependent Care Credit. Visit the IRS website for more information. DigiPen Institute of Technology's tax ID number is 91-1946296.

DigiPen's ProjectFUN offers workshops, camps and college prep courses for kids and teens. Technology courses are held in Redmond, WA (near Seattle and Bellevue), and online.
