Our Scholarship Fund subsidizes educational workshops for schools on-site at the Museum or off-site through our Mobile Children’s Museum (MCM). Scholarships are primarily awarded to Title-I and low-income schools, whose students receive few supplemental resources for their education, and may never visit the Museum without assistance. We continually have a wait list for schools who need assistance with both on-site workshops and Mobile Children’s Museum visits.
Our Field Trip School Fund provides scholarships for students from Title-I and low-income schools to take a field trip to the Museum for one of our Science, Art, or World Culture educational workshops. Scholarships subsidize price of admission and workshops for all students, in addition to transportation in needed. Workshops target preschool through Grade 2.
Our Mobile Children’s Museum Fund provides scholarships for students to have the MCM visit their school free of charge. With a visit from the MCM we can potentially reach more children than an on-site workshop, and the cost is much less. MCM workshops target students from preschool through Grade 3.
- The Mobile Children’s Museum has reached across the region as far as Chula Vista, San Diego, Oceanside, and even up into Temecula.
- We are seeking funds to purchase a second MCM van this spring!
