Student Scholarships

We ask you to share the news about this camp with your students entering grades 8 through 12 who show an interest in meteorology.

Please don’t let a lack of financial resources prevent interested and talented students from applying. A limited number of scholarships are available to financially disadvantaged students, and other scholarships are available to students from underrepresented groups.

How to Apply

  1. Complete registration process.
  2. Secure your spot by making payment in full as the camps fill quickly.* If you are awarded a scholarship, that amount will be refunded to you.
  3. Submit a 150-word (maximum), handwritten essay on “Why I want to go to Penn State’s Weather Camp.” Essays may be scanned and emailed to
  4. All materials must be received by Friday, February 19, 2021.

*If you are unable to make the payment up front, you may submit a Printable Registration Form along with the essay and Youth Health Form, and follow the submission procedure on the form. Please be aware that since the camps fill quickly, you are not guaranteed a spot until payment is received.

You will receive an email notification in early April if you were awarded a scholarship.
