WildCare Education Program Scholarships

Current year FRPM figures

On a nature hike with WildCare. Photo by Tory RussellIf your school participates in the Free or Reduced Price Meal program (FRPM), your class is eligible for a scholarship that matches the percentage of the student body that is eligible for FRPM.

For example, if 50% of the students at your school are eligible for FRPM, then any class at your school qualifies for a 50% scholarship for any WildCare Education Program fee.

For our Distance Learning Program, if your school’s FRPM is 80% or higher, we will award your class a full scholarship.

Please note: We are only able to provide a scholarship for one program, per classroom, per school year. If your class is split in half due to distancing protocols we can do the same program for your class twice.

To apply for a scholarship, go to the Program Request Form and complete the required information.

The FRPM percentage for your school can be found by clicking here and selecting the Unduplicated Student Poverty – Free or Reduced Price Meals Data 2019–20 file.

Open the file and click on the “FRPM School-Level Data” tab. Search for your school and scroll all the way to the right to find your school’s FRPM percentage in the column titled “Percent (%) Eligible FRPM (Ages 5-17).”
