Scholarships

Welcome to Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History! Our goal is for museum camps and classes to be accessible for all. Each museum’s Scholarship Funds provide financial aid that discounts the out-of-pocket program cost for eligible families. The information in your application is kept confidential and will be used for the sole purpose of establishing financial need. All scholarship awards are need-based and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until all funds for the season have been disbursed.
