Space Camp Scholarship

The Deer Valley Education Foundation is excited to once again offer your 7th and 8th grade students an opportunity to apply for a chance to attend Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama this summer!  Attached is the application.


The Deer Valley Education Foundation Space Academy Program will provide winning DVUSD 7th or 8th grade students with tuition and travel expenses to attend Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama during the summer of 2017.  Runners-up will each be awarded a Barnes & Noble gift card. 


Interested 7th or 8th grade DVUSD student applicants must attach and submit an original, typed, informative, well organized essay in 500 to 1,000 words telling us “Why I Want to Attend Space Academy/Camp”.  The essay must be the student’s original work.


Essays will be judged by an independent selection panel to become a finalist for a DVEF Space Academy Program scholarship.  Finalists will then be scheduled for an interview with the selection panel.  These interviews are scheduled on the early release day of May 5th, 2017 at the District Office (20402 N. 15th Ave., Phoenix), and will be approximately 15 minutes in duration.  Finalists will be notified of the results by DVEF.  Finalists might be presented at a DVUSD School Board Meeting (20402 N. 15th Ave., Phoenix) tentatively in May.
