Through funding by the Greater Kanawha County Foundation, Kanawha County 4-H program has received scholarship money to assist youth interested in STEM to attend STEM tracks at WVU Extension State 4-H Camps or WVU Tech STEM Camp in Montgomery, WV. These few scholarships provided will be in the range of $150- $250 to help offset the cost of STEM Camp Costs.
