Scholarships are available for summer camps!
Scholarships will be awarded weekly, based on a random drawing of all scholarship applicants. The first drawing will take place during the week of February 18th. If selected, we will award one class per summer, per child. Your application will stay in the drawing until your name is picked or until all funds have been used.
Scholarships for 85% of the fee are available for families currently receiving public assistance (TANF, MFIP, General Assistance, WIC, Medicaid or Medical Assistance, SSI, Foodstamps, MN Care, Section 8 Housing or Free or Reduced Price School Meals). You will be awarded or declined depending on the availability of funds.
Scholarships for 50% of the fee are available for other families needing assistance. These awards are based on financial need and availability of funds.
Funding for the scholarship program is made possible by generous contributions from Science Museum employees and volunteers, individual contributors, sale of summer camp T-shirts, The McKnight Foundation, and the Andersen Family Foundation.
Generous contributions from businesses and individuals help us realize the dream of making assistance available for all who need it. In recent years, we have expanded this program to include more scholarships for summer day camps. You may contribute to this fund by indicating an amount on your registration form.
