Scholarship Opportunities

Join us in creating opportunities for our community’s youth to experience the life-changing power of science, technology and nature. Investing in the Scholarship Fund provides access for underserved students to experience hands-on STEM education and help them realize their dreams. Contributions to the Scholarship Fund support camps, classes, and workshops with a registration fee beyond Museum admission.

Discovery Place Camps

In addition to developing a solid foundation in STEM subjects, Discovery Place camps build social capital and emotional intelligence with experiences that foster grit, endurance and confidence led by positive real-life role models.

By investing in Discovery Place’s Scholarship Fund you are opening doors, breaking glass ceilings and equipping students with knowledge that will drive their future.

How to Donate

The average cost to send a student to a full week of STEM camp is $450. This includes extended care hours and lunch. A donation of any amount significantly impacts the lives of these scholars. To find out more about Discovery Place’s Scholarship Fund or to set it up, contact Courtney Hurd,
