Scholarship Information

The DroneCamp Scholarship Program offers financial support to students, non-profits, and individuals who would like to participate in DroneCamp. Scholarships cover the registration fee only; any supplies or personal costs associated with participation are the responsibility of the recipient.

Limited funds are available to support affiliates of:

  • UC ANR – Note: Deadline for ANR scholarships is June 28 due to fiscal year-end
  • UC Santa Cruz
  • CSU Monterey Bay
  • Cal View or America View
  • AIFS

Additionally, a limited number of scholarships will be competitively awarded based on need and the anticipated impact of the training to any other interested students or individuals. Partial scholarships may also be available.

The committee will review and award recipients via email by July 9.
