Scholarship Deadline Extended to June 30 for UCR Extension Summer Youth STEM Discovery Program

Wells Fargo is offering 15 scholarships to students who attend the program at UCR Palm Desert Center

RIVERSIDE, California (www.ucr.edu) — Wells Fargo is again supporting youth programs at UCR Extension through a generous scholarship fund for students in grades 3 through 8 who are participating in the STEM Discovery program at UCR Palm Desert Center this summer. Fifteen scholarships are available, and the deadline to submit an application has been extended to June 30.

UCR Extension offers summer STEM programs for grades 3–8.

Students in this program will participate in fun and engaging workshops in typical STEM subjects like robotics, aeronautics, energy, and physics. Activities are designed to engage their minds and pique their curiosity for learning through the use of hands-on projects. Cost is $295 for the entire week.

Last year, Palm Desert’s CBS affiliate featured a story in its Eye on the Desert segment, highlighting the benefits of UCR Extension’s STEM Discovery program.

The STEM Discovery program runs July 24–28 at the UCR Palm Desert Center, 75080 Frank Sinatra Drive, Palm Desert.

Apply before June 30 to be considered for a scholarship.
