Why Us - Scholarships


Summer Discovery is proud to award almost $200,000 in scholarships to deserving students annually. Scholarship assistance to students and their families is provided in several ways.

Partner Organizations

Scholarships are distributed through mentoring organizations that are offered to their students on our behalf. We are proud partners of the following organizations:

Merit Scholarship

Additionally, we offer 1 Merit Scholarship for partial tuition in the amount of $2,000 each for students with a minimum GPA of 3.6. The scholarship applications become available in January of each year for the upcoming summer, and are due by April 1. Please contact info@summerdiscovery.com after January 9th to request an application.

Fundraising and additional scholarships

As there is only one scholarship available to fund partial tuition, we encourage you to reach out to your school counselor and community for academic fundraising and scholarship opportunities. If needed, we can always provide paperwork detailing the academic value of our programs. We also suggest visiting Fund My Travel, an online fundraising website.

If you are not selected for one of our scholarship opportunties, we will refund the application fee. This does not apply to our programs at Penn, Wharton, Miami, Wellesley, Johns Hopkins, and the UC Santa Barbara RMP and SRA programs.
