Summer Camp Scholarships

2019 Summer Camp Scholarship (50%) Application

The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery is a non-profit organization; in order to maximize the impact of funds which have been granted to our organization to distribute to the public in the form of summer camp scholarships, the Boonshoft Museum will cover the costs of tuition up to 50%. Approved scholarship recipients will be required to pay the remaining balance of their Summer Camp tuition at the time of registration.

Each applicant needs to:

  1. Complete the online application form. (Available when registration opens on February 18.)
  2. Provide proof* of free/reduced lunch.
  3. Submit a letter of support* from a teacher or other non-relative adult.

2019 (Final) Application Deadline: May 6
2019 Scholarship recipients will be notified on or before: May 17

Because scholarship funding is limited we ask that applicants complete the process as soon as possible. Recipients will be notified as soon as they are approved, but please note that scholarships may NOT be applied retroactively to camps for which you have already registered. Approval can take up to three (3) weeks from the date that the application is complete.

If you have any questions regarding our scholarship program, or if you have an extreme financial need that you feel warrants further consideration, please call 937.275.7431, ext. 150.

*All documentation and letters of support may be uploaded with the online form or submitted separately, but must be included for the application to be considered complete and evaluated for a scholarship. If you cannot upload documentation with the online form, it must be delivered to our Summer Camp staff. This can be done in person (M-F, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.), by email (, or via USPS (Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, c/o Summer Camp Scholarships, 2600 DeWeese Parkway, Dayton, OH 45414).
