The Air Zoo Science Inspiration Scholarship Fund - Individual & Group Education
AIR ZOO SCIENCE INSPIRATION SCHOLARSHIP FUND FOR GROUP VISITS, FIELD TRIPS, EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH, AND INDIVIDUAL FINANCIAL AID FOR CAMPS & CLASSESThe Air Zoo is dedicated to connecting students with science and technology through positive, engaging, and immersive experiences that align with educational standards and inspire exciting career choices and pathways. Supported in part by the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and individual donors, the Science Inspiration Fund was developed to break down the economic barriers that greatly inhibit many schools, community organizations, and youth groups from taking an active part in Air Zoo's exceptional educational programming.
GROUP VISITS, FIELD TRIPS, AND EDUCATIONAL OUTREACHScholarships are intended strictly for the support of need-based schools and youth-serving organizations. At least 50% of students or members must qualify for the USDA free & reduced price lunch program. Scholarship applications may request funding to support the cost of Air Zoo admission fees, exhibit attendance, tours, and classroom experiences. To apply, download our application by cli clicking HERE, fill it out, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications can be submitted via fax at 269.382.1813 (please address to "Group Sales Dept."). For more information or to book your group Air Zoo experience, contact the Group Sales team at 269.350.2848 or email@example.com.
