Scholarships

Through the generous support of the funding community, we are pleased to offer scholarships to teachers and school groups that are in need of financial assistance in order to participate in a Challenger Learning Center program.

Back to Educator Resources

Challenger Learning Center has a number of grant-funded programs that will allow schools to participate at a reduced cost. Schools must have a 50% minimum of student population eligible for free/reduced lunch in order to apply. The amount of funds granted is based on the amount of funds we receive, which can vary from year to year.
