Summer Camp IMAG Scholarship Fund
The Camp IMAG Camp Scholarship Fund aims to maximize educational opportunity for all children. The IMAG History & Science Center is committed to supporting our community, especially in the area of STEM Education. The Camp IMAG Scholarship Fund supports families in need by offering tuition assistance for rising 1st to 8th graders to our STEM and history camps. Applications for the need-based scholarships will be submitted to and reviewed by a third-party organization who will determine the award recipients. Each award recipient will receive one week of paid camp tuition (a $225 value), as well as a free Annual Family Membership (a $100 value) to the IMAG History & Science Center for up to 2 adults and 4 children. We are so proud to offer this program and be a part of expanding STEM and history education in our community.
