Scholarship Committee


2024 Scholarship Committee

Call for members!

Keystone Science School distributes approximately $70,000 in scholarship funding throughout the year. Over 80% of our scholarship funding is awarded to families whose children will attend a summer camp experience at KSS.

Scholarship recipients are determined in collaboration with a Scholarship Committee. Our Scholarship Committee reviews all applications. Members are given detailed instructions to assist with their review of applications and the completion of a rubric that guides their recommendation of awards.

KSS is currently seeking Scholarship Committee members to review applications to our summer programming. Applications for our Summer Program Scholarship are offered in three cycles to families with three review periods. Scholarship committee members can sign up for one or more review periods. Sign up with the link below or contact our Development Director, Owen Dodd at or call (970)513-5833.

We recognize that some Committee Members will have clarifying questions about our rubric or about specific applications. To support these questions, we are offering a Virtual Technical Assistance webinar for any Committee Member to attend. These webinars will be hosted by a KSS Staff Member who can address questions about our process, the rubric, or who can help Committee Members think through scoring a specific rubric.
