Financial assistance available. 


The summit is open to students who will be 14-17 years of age by the time of the summit.

The student portion of the Summit tuition is $490. Apply before May 1st and receive a $90 discount.

To help make attending the National Environmental Summit more affordable for all students, the Center for the Environment would like to make a point of expressing three strategies that will ensure that financial cost will not be a burden.

  1. The $490 covers all expenses for the week-long program except for transportation. A shuttle to and from Charlotte-Douglas Airport and the Salisbury Train Depot will be provided. All other transportation costs are the responsibility of the student.
  2. Students who apply by May 1st will automatically receive $90 off the $490 tuition.
  3. Additional financial assistance is available on an as-need basis. Submit your financial assistance form with your application here

(Note: The student portion of the Summit tuition for students  is $490. This covers most of the cost of meals and lodging for the 5-day/4-night Summit. The generous contributions of our sponsors help us to meet the remaining costs of staffing, programming, speakers, etc.)
