We are excited to announce that The Georgia Department of Education has funded Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) Student Programs to receive funding through the Building Opportunities in Out-of-School Time (BOOST) grant program!
2023-2024 Summer Scholarship Information
At CEISMC we believe that financial hardship should never hinder a child's opportunity to participate in one of our summer programs. As a result, we are proud to offer scholarships for all of our on-campus school year and summer programs. Scholarships reduce the registration fee for a summer program by 75%. Each program has a limited number of scholarships and they are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.
