The Mars Generation Space Camp Scholarship Program
Tomorrow’s leaders are today’s students. Space Camp® is an amazing place to help expand young people’s interests and to motivate youth to work hard toward their dreams. The Mars Generation℠ scholarship program makes Space Camp possible for young people who have aptitude in STEM but do not have the resources to attend Space Camp.
The Mars Generation ensures that STEM aptitude is not lost due to lack of opportunity. Our scholarship program provides 100% funding (including transportation) for youth with aptitude in STEM and financial need to attend U.S. Space Camp ®. Space Camp provides exceptional inspirational experiences to talented youth that can help shape their future educational and career choices.
