Scholarships

Scholarships from Hog Island, private donors, and partnering organizations

Full and partial scholarships to attend Hog Island programs may be available from your local Audubon chapter, bird club, school or other sponsoring institution. Some scholarship offerings are listed below, though many other organizations may offer scholarships if you ask. You can find your local Audubon Chapter by entering your zip code here.

If you are unsure you will be awarded a full scholarship from a sponsoring group, you may want to reserve your place (with the $100 deposit) and then piece together funding from various sources. If you are later awarded a full scholarship by a group that has also paid the deposit, you will be refunded your deposit.
