Scholarships

Kids by lily pondsThe Missouri Botanical Garden’s Education Department offers need-based scholarships so that every student has the opportunity to experience, explore, discover and learn at the Garden and its St. Louis area destinations, including its main campus (Shaw Blvd. in St. Louis), the Shaw Nature Reserve (Gray Summit, Missouri) and the Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House (Chesterfield, Missouri).

Schools and other organizations with 50 percent or more of their students on free or reduced lunch programs are eligible for scholarships that cover fees for a portion of the total or if necessary, the entire class. Please print, complete and mail in the School Scholarship Application.

Individual students who wish to participate in Garden programs outside of their school setting are also eligible for scholarships. Interested students should print, complete and mail in the Student Scholarship Application.
