Wonder Fund Scholarships

Mini-grants are regularly awarded to help school groups and youth with financial need experience the parks. Last year, more than 100,000 students engaged with nature centers and other park facilities in Three Rivers as part of their curriculum, and many of them relied on charitable contributions to participate. In addition, the Wonder Fund gave youth with financial need the opportunity to attend summer camp or enrich their lives through other fee-based programs and events.

Any individual can request financial assistance to attend one public program offered by Three Rivers per year. Groups serving youth with financial need may apply for financial assistance for weekday field trips to Three Rivers Parks. Schools receiving financial assistance are eligible for up to eight scholarships per year.
