Funding Available from Santa Clara County!
Maker Nexus is excited to announce we are partnering with Santa Clara County to provide scholarships for our summer camps, classes, and workshops to eligible families. The Summer Camps and Enrichment Activities (SCEA) program was designed to help foster, adopted, and low-income children and youth in Santa Clara County participate in summer activities by providing eligible families with scholarships. The Kinship, Adoptive and Foster Parent Association (KAFPA) of Santa Clara County coordinates the SCEA program and is your point of contact for questions and assistance regarding eligibility.
All scholarships are awarded to eligible families on a first-come, first-serve basis until the funding provided by the SCC Board of Supervisors is depleted. Apply today while funding remains available!
