Scholarship Policy

Scholarships are available for eligible families. Scholarships for Earthroots Field School are limited in their scope and are intended as assistance to enable people to participate who otherwise would be unable to afford the full cost of our programs. Submission of a scholarship application does NOT automatically register a participant for a program or reserve a space in that program. Please do NOT register online for a program if you are applying for a scholarship for that program. We will reach out to you when we receive your application. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].

Earthroots is committed to creating nature connection opportunities for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) participants. We are offering two full BIPOC Scholarships for this program.

It is Earthroots Field School’s policy and pleasure to make scholarship space available in its programs for those in need.
