Camps Scholarships

Scholarships for Sternberg Museum Summer Science Camps

Scholarships are available to help students attend the Sternberg Museum Science Camps programs. This financial aid is currently available for all programs taking place within the USA for elementary, middle, and high school students. Aid is distributed on a need+merit basis, and is highly dependent on how much we have available to distribute in any given year. We encourage interested potential students to apply even if they do not think they will qualify. Our goal is to make these opportunities as accessible as possible
