Individual Scholarship Application Form

Dodge Nature Center provides scholarships to reduce camp and program fees for families and individuals that request assistance and qualify. Scholarships are awarded for up to one full year, September 1–August 31. Please apply for your scholarship early—this speeds up the registration process for the camps and programs you wish to attend.

How to apply

1. Complete the online scholarship application form below.
2. Attach a copy of the letter from your school district stating that you qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.

You can also print the application form and mail your completed application with the above document to Pete Cleary, Director of Environmental Education, 365 Marie Avenue W, West St. Paul, MN 55118, or email

The information you provide on this form will be treated as confidential and used only to determine and verify eligibility for scholarships.

After you apply

You will be notified by email if you are awarded a scholarship. Dodge does not offer full scholarships; you will be asked to contribute a portion of the camp or program fee. Your scholarship does not automatically reserve your spot in any camp or program. Dodge staff will email you instructions on how to register with your discounted price.
