Space Camp changes lives…
Space Camp uses the excitement of U.S. and international space programs to stimulate young people’s interest in STEM studies: proven touchstones for technological achievement and economic advantage.
While key to global leadership, technological and economic superiority do not stand alone in achieving a higher quality of life for all. Space Camp is also a cross-cultural experience that affords trainees unique communications and teamwork skills that are valuable to both an increasingly diverse workforce and global consciousness.
Donations to the Space Camp Scholarship Fund may have a lasting impact through the dreams and forward actions of a Space Camp, Aviation Challenge or Robotics Camp trainee. General scholarship fund recipients undergo an application process and are selected by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center Education Foundation Scholarship Committee.
The cost of one full scholarship for a weeklong Space Camp, Aviation Challenge or Robotics Camp program is $1,000. Donations made in excess of $1,000 are applied to additional scholarships. Donations less than $1,000 are welcome and likewise help provide opportunities to deserving applicants.
"We want to train and inspire the next generation of astronauts, pilots, engineers, scientists and leaders."
- Edward O. Buckbee, Space Camp founder and chief executive of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, retired
