Financial Aid
The Experimentory offers a limited amount of financial assistance for domestic students. Financial aid is based on need and is applied for along with the program application. We are not able to provide financial aid to cover the cost of the entire program.

All students applying for financial aid must apply for both the program and financial aid by February 1, 2019 to be considered.  Financial aid applicants will be notified of their admissions decision and financial aid decision together via email by February 15, 2019.

Applicants
We are looking for applicants that are curious, creative, and ready to take intellectual chances. However, our students also have the following demographics:

  • The Experimentory students must be current 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, therefore entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade the fall of 2019 after the Experimentory.
  • We excitedly welcome students of all kinds from across the country and world. We have had students from fifteen states and eleven countries.
