Discovery Scholarships

Thanks to the generous financial support of the Flagstaff Community Foundation, scholarship funds are available for youth who demonstrate financial need or have extenuating circumstances.* We keep overall program costs as affordable as possible and are working diligently to assure that no child is turned away from Discovery for lack of funds. Scholarship recipients are eligible for assistance for up to two programs each season, with maximum scholarship amounts totaling $375.00.

Scholarship Process

Complete the scholarship application, paying special attention to essay questions. These application questions are for the participant to answer. Please consult with your child prior to filling them out, or if they are able to write, feel free to encourage them to respond to the questions themselves.
