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 financial 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.
