School Group Scholarships

IMG_3064.JPGIn order to make Science Factory programs and servicces accessible to all members of the community, the Science Factory is pleased to provide financial assistance to groups who are unable to afford regular admission and program registration fees.

 

Each year the Science Factory is able to offer a limited number of partial and full scholarships to schools and organizations requesting financial assistance. Scholarship recipients must first provide evidence of financial need. 

 

The Science Factory's goal is to assist all those who request and qualify for assistance; however, we may not be able to fulfill all requests. Requests for scholarships are approved on the basis of eligibility and the availability of funds. Requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
