Pearson Field Education Center has a limited number of full and partial scholarships for Summer Camps. Scholarship funds are offered so that students, who otherwise could not afford to attend camps, can attend. Scholarships are awarded based on the applicants need and interest in STEM and aviation camp. First time applicants will be given consideration over those who previously received scholarships.
