Dear STEM Summer Camp Scholarship Applicant,
The Soap Box Derby is excited to offer a limited number of partial scholarships for the 2019 Soap Box Derby STEM Summer Camp! We are providing these scholarships to help children who may not be able to afford the camp otherwise. STEM Summer Camp participants will construct a Soap Box Derby car, race a Soap Box Derby car daily down Derby Downs, design and build a Mini Soap Box Derby car and much more.
Soap Box Derby STEM Summer Camp is for children ages 8-13. Sample characteristics of a good applicant include, but are not limited to:
An interest in a variety of fun, hands-on STEM projects.
Curiosity in or willing to explore Soap Box Derby.
Ability to get along well with others.
A willingness to try new things and meet new people.
What is covered?
Each scholarship awarded will include 50% of tuition cost for one session of the STEM Summer Camp.
The STEM Summer Camp Application is composed of 2 parts:
Part A: Application Form - to be completed by the child with a parent/guardian. (This form is below and must be submitted online)
Part B: Students must identify two individuals willing to serve as a reference on their behalf. References should be non-related, adults (18 years and older) who know the child well (teacher, counselor, tutor, a family friend, etc.) Each reference must complete a separate letter of recommendation. References should send the letter directly to the Soap Box Derby. Letters must be received before the scholarship application deadline. Letters can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to apply for a 2019 Soap Box Derby STEM Summer Camp scholarship is April 5, 2019.
We will inform the scholarship recipients by May 3, 2019.
