2020 Summer Camp Scholarship Application

The Museum is pleased to offer need-based scholarship opportunities for campers thanks to generous support over the years from JPMorgan Chase & Co., The Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, and others. 

The Natural History Museum of Utah strives to provide high-quality, inclusive programming to children attending kindergarten through the seventh grades. We are thankful to our camp sponsors, who have generously donated funding toward our scholarship program for 2020. Scholarships cover 100% of camp fees and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to students who receive free or reduced price lunch in the Free or Reduced School Lunch Program, or whose families meet the Income Eligibility Guidelines for the program.

Please note that because funds are limited and demand for camp is high, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a scholarship award. In addition, while we do our best to fulfill requests, qualifying for a scholarship does not guarantee a spot in summer camp. The scholarship program allows one scholarship per child per summer. If a family has more than one child, the parent or guardian may submit a separate application for each child in the household. Preference will be given to new applicants, however applicants who have received a scholarship in the past will still be considered. Parents or guardians are responsible for providing transportation each day of camp as well as a lunch, if the camp session is offered in a full-day format.

Scholarship applications and supporting materials can be submitted beginning April 1, 2020 at 10:00am. A link to an application form will become available on this page at that time. We reserve the right to close the application process, without notice, once our scholarship funding has run out or spots in our camp program are full. Completed applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and applicants will be notified within five business days of receipt. Application information will be held confidentially and destroyed when Summer Camp 2020 has concluded.
