Local Scholarships

Gratiot Lake -- Field Study in Aquatic Ecology
A scholarship for students interested in intensive, hands-on ecological studies at Gratiot Lake.

This scholarship through the Army Educational Outreach Program will bring students from our local school districts to SYP for a total of four weeks during the summer. Those selected will receive a scholarship to cover one live-in week at Engineering Scholars Program, as well as three commuter weeks for the three weeks of Summer Youth Programs explorations. The scholarship is geared to serve students traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields. Please contact our office directly for more information. Download Application

Don't see what you are looking for?
If none of these scholarship opportunities meet your requirements, there are several ways you can seek funding.

Talk to your school counselor. They may know more about opportunities in your area, or have the resources to find them. You can also inquire at local businesses and community organizations (Zonta, Lions Club, youth groups, etc). Community groups are often willing to help their local students achieve their aspirations.
