We are delighted to announce that we have an unprecedented number of scholarships for this year's summer camps! Thanks to generous donations from Ann and Winston Brundige, Northrop Grumman, Utah STEM Action Center, and Bank of Utah, we have 30 scholarships available spread across all of this year's camps. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about scholarships. If you have other questions, please reach out to us by commenting here or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I apply?
To apply for a scholarship, simply navigate to the STAR Camp section of this webpage or click here. On that page, you will see a button for STAR Camp Scholarships. From there, you will find a description of the available scholarships as well as the application. There is one application form for all scholarships. Please indicate which scholarships you are interested in on the application.
Who fills out the application?
The essay questions must be filled out by the scholar planning to attend camp, not their parents. Parents may assist, but the essay responses should be in your child's own words. Parents may help Junior Astronauts, but please allow your child to dictate their responses to you.
When is the deadline?
Applications are due by April 12th. Scholarships will be awarded no later than April 19th.
Who is eligible?
All students may apply for a camp scholarship. Please make sure that the scholarship you are applying for matches the camp you are registering for.
How many scholarships can one camper get?
Each camper may only receive one scholarship per camp season.
Remaining tuition balance after scholarships are awarded must be paid in full by May 24th. Scholars will write thank you letters to donors while they are at camp.
