Garden School Program Scholarships
Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden offers need-based scholarships to Title 1 schools within Gaston, York and Mecklenburg counties as a means of opportunity for students to discover and explore in a place-based learning environment. Scholarships are available first-come, first-serve; based on availability of funds. Please choose from one of our 14 Guided School Programs (additional chaperone admission cannot be applied towards scholarship) in order to best supplement your classroom curriculum. Scholarships are designed to cover the cost of the program, transportation and lunch (cost limitations apply). Bus and lunch scheduling are the responsibility of the school. Limit 3 classes per school per funding cycle. A class consists of 25-30 students with 3 school personnel and our funding cycle is semi-annual.
Application must be received at least three weeks before preferred program dates. Teachers may choose any date throughout the year EXCEPT during the months of April and May.
