Group Visit Scholarships

PLEASE NOTE: Scholarship funding is not available at this time for field trip groups. Please consider donating to our scholarship fund.

In order to make Eugene Science Center programs and service accessible to all members of the community, the Eugene Science Center is pleased to provide financial assistance to groups who are unable to afford regular admission and program registration fees.

Each year the Eugene Science Center is able to offer a limited number of partial and full scholarships to schools and organizations requesting financial assistance. Scholarship recipients must first provide evidence of financial need.

The Eugene Science Center’s goal is to assist all those who request and qualify for assistance; however, we may not be able to fulfill all requests. Requests for scholarships are approved on the basis of eligibility and the availability of funds. Requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
