Camp Scholarships

Aquatic Science Camp Scholarship Information - Please contact Aaron Swink at aquaticscamp@txstate.edu or 512-245-3541 to learn more about the scholarships or apply. Check back with this page as we will keep it updated as other funds become available.


Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer Conservation District Scholarship - This scholarship is offered by the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District.  Information on the BSEACD’s Aquatic Science Adventure Camp scholarship can be found at http://www.bseacd.org/events/scholarships. To qualify, students must reside in one of the six school districts within the District boundaries. These six independent school districts are: Austin, Eanes, Dripping Springs, Hays Consolidated, Del Valle and Lockhart. Deadline for application is March 22nd, 2017.

Edwards Aquifer Authority Scholarship - The sponsorships that are offered by the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) are for $150 per student.  The sponsorship can be applied to any camp session.  The only requirement to receive the sponsorship (as long as funds are available) is that the student must reside within the jurisdictional boundaries of the EAA.  This includes all of Uvalde, Medina and Bexar Counties and portions of Atascosa, Comal (including the City of New Braunfels), Guadalupe, Hays (including the City of San Marcos) and Caldwell Counties.  A general map of the EAA boundaries is available on the EAA web site, http://www.edwardsaquifer.org/maps/mapgraphics/EdwardsAquifersystemPattern.pdf.

If you cannot determine whether you are within their boundaries from the map, then you can contact your county clerk (in some counties you would need to contact the tax assessor-collector or county election administrator) and ask if you can vote in the Edwards Aquifer Authority director election, based on your address.  If you can vote in their election, you are within their boundaries.

Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority Scholarship - GBRA provides one 6-day, overnight Adventure Camp scholarship for a student that lives within their jurisdiction.  A map of the GBRA district can be found at http://www.gbra.org/maps/basin.aspx. To apply for this scholarship please have your child send a <1 page essay about why they want to come to camp to aquaticscamp@txstate.edu by March 31, 2017.  Winners will be announced April 15.

Other scholarships - Additional sources of scholarship funding may be found through the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented summer enrichment scholarship (www.txgifted.org/scholarships, deadline to apply is Feb 24, 2016), or through your local school district if they have funding for summer educational programs.
