How to fund explorations is always a topic of interest, especially for teachers and principals.

That is why EdExploreSRQ offers the opportunity to search by price from $0 on up. These searches and financial information help schools and teachers develop an Exploration budget.

Explorations on the EdExploreSRQ website include costs and information specific to each provider. Some Explorations are free, and often providers offer financial assistance. Student fees, school discretionary funds and PTO support are also frequently used to pay for participation costs. In some cases, providers even use their donor support to fund explorations, especially for lower income students and schools.
