Bernard J. Peck Memorial Scholarship Program

A limited number of scholarships are available to individuals interested in attending educational programs offered by the Zoological Society of Milwaukee at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Scholarships are awarded to fund need-based individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend these activities. Need-based scholarships are available as funds allow.

Please note the following:

  • Scholarship funds do not include transportation assistance, but do include admission to the Milwaukee County Zoo for the scholarship recipient on the date of the selected program(s).
  • One scholarship per person may be awarded annually (within a calendar year). If applying for multiple individuals, submit one application form per person.
  • Registration is based on availability; approval does not guarantee a spot in requested activity. Placement will be determined by space availability.

APPLICATION PERIOD FEB. 1-APR. 27. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED WITHIN A MONTH REGARDING SCHOLARSHIP ACCEPTANCE.

If your scholarship has been approved, we will contact you by phone to confirm your registration and go over the information you entered on your paper registration form. If you receive a partial scholarship, you will be charged 50% of the program fee. Scholarships for our summer Zoo Camp program will begin to be awarded at the beginning of May. If your application is not approved, we will notify you within a month of receiving your application.
