Camps Financial Aid

Financial Aid for Sternberg Museum Summer Science Camps

Financial assistance is 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. While we do offer financial aid for our international programs, we cannot at this time provide any full ride scholarships. We are working diligently to increase our annual financial aid budget, which will hopefully allow us to eventually provide ample financial assistance to international trip students.
