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 Scholarships 

Additionally,  Summer Discovery offers five merit scholarships annually in the amount of $2,000 each toward Summer Discovery tuition (open to all students), or for tuition at a higher education institute (graduating high school seniors only). 

Here are the details:

  • Application opens in January for the upcoming summer
  • GPA of 3.6 or higher
  • Due by April 1
  • Request an application at info@summerdiscovery.com

Fundraising and additional scholarships

We encourage students to reach out to their school counselor and community for academic scholarship and fundraising opportunities, as individual scholarships are limited and only fund partial tuition. It is also suggested to visit Fund My Travel, an online fundraising website.
