Project Oceanology is very grateful to the foundations, businesses, private donors, and scholarship sponsors that have enabled us to accept applications for Summer Camp Tuition Assistance. Our policy is to award the limited amount of tuition assistance funds that we have based primarily on need.  In an effort to assist as many campers as possible to attend our camps we do not offer 100% assistance.  

Please note that before submitting an application for tuition assistance, you must register your child for

camp through our online registration software which requires a deposit of 25% of camp tuition. In the event assistance is not available, and you are unable to pay full tuition, your deposit will be refunded.

Tuition assistance for Project Oceanology Summer Camps has been made possible this year through the sources listed below, with additional donations, sponsorships, and grant funding continuing to be accepted:​

  • The Ed Adam Scholarship was established in honor of Ed Adam by his family to provide assistance to campers for summer camp. Ed was an exceptionally dynamic and charismatic man; a science teacher at Cutler JHS in Groton, CT, and one of the founders of Project Oceanology.

  • The Tracey McKenzie Scholarship was established in honor of Tracey McKenzie by her family to provide assistance to campers for summer camp. Tracey was a dedicated marine scientist and a natural leader and mentor who generously shared her knowledge and expertise with young and old alike.

  • The Connecticut Environmental Forum, an organization which provides a forum for environmental professionals to share and exchange information and experiences on environmental matters, and to learn about the latest issues regarding environmental regulation.  

  • The Bodenwein Public Benevolent Foundation, established in 1938 under the will of Theodore Bodenwein, owner and publisher of The Day newspaper, to support and promote quality educational, cultural, human services, and health care programming for underserved populations.
