USS Hornet Museum Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarship Fund

Paracon 2013 was a successful education fundraiser which raised $2,000 in scholarship funding.

The Museum strongly feels that our Stem to Stern programs will enrich many students’ appreciation and promote the importance of STEM education to local schools. We are pleased to announce the STEM scholarship which will grant approved applicants a reduced admission fee to participate in our education curriculum.

One of our organization's greatest desires is to share our unique educational platform with less privileged students. This fund will offer participating schools half price student admission fees for the following programs: Stem to Stern Jr . and Stem to Stern.

These exiting curriculums are based on "California Educational Standards" and focus on math, science and history. The scholarship will be available for schools to utilize starting September 2013. To apply, please fill in and submit the STEM scholarship application form.
