CU Science Discovery strongly believes that all kids should have an opportunity to attend our summer camp program. Through private donations, grants and fundraising, CU Science Discovery is able to provide limited financial assistance for children without the resources to participate in these programs.
Full and partial scholarships are provided based upon availability of funding and financial need. Requests for financial assistance are received and approved on a first come, first served basis. Science Discovery strives to provide assistance to as many families as possible – please consider this when determining the amount you are able to contribute towards the cost of your child’s camp. If you are applying for financial assistance for multiple children, you must complete a separate application for each child. Please note: In this situation, proof of income is only required to be submitted once.
Once the Scholarship Application is submitted in full, the review process takes approximately 2 weeks. Applicants will be notified of scholarship awards via email.
