SYP Scholarship

Scholarships will be granted on a rolling basis with a May 1, 2022 deadline.

Our programs are built on hands-on, engaging projects, field trips, and collaboration - designed to spark curiosity and give students opportunities not always possible in a traditional classroom. We believe every student is deserving of this experience and have launched the SYP Scholarship to ensure those facing financial hardships will still have the opportunity to explore their interests and career aspirations, and become a part of the next generation of makers and doers. This scholarship is open to all students in grades 6-11 and scholarships available vary based on need and volume of requests.

If none of these scholarship opportunities meet your requirements, there are several ways you can seek funding.

Talk to your school counselor. They may know more about opportunities in your area, or have the resources to find them. You can also inquire at local businesses and community organizations (Zonta, Lions Club, youth groups, etc). Community groups are often willing to help their local students achieve their aspirations.
