Need Based Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Need Based Scholarships and Financial Assistance

Ironwood Tree Experience wants every youth to experience the natural world and develop a strong relationship with their community. ITE is fortunate to be part of a community of people and local businesses who value this as well. Most of our programs are subsidized by grants and local sponsors, making programs more accessible for youth to participate. However, we understand that the cost may still be too expensive for some participants to afford. To eliminate this financial barrier, we try to provide Payment Plans as well as Partial and Full Scholarships for EcoPrograms from Get Outside to Global Experience.


Please first contact lesley@ironwoodtreeexperience.org if you are interested setting up a no-interest Payment Plan or a need based scholarship.

Please know that current ITE members are eligible for partial and full scholarships and payment plans. New ITE participants are eligible for partial scholarships and payment plans.

Please note that participants selected to receive scholarship funding must come to the ITE Urban Field Station with a parent to sign an agreement form before the start of the program.
