Why We Encourage Learning
The Tom Goad Scholarship Fund was established in 2010 to assist San Diego County Title I schools in bringing students to Balboa Park for a day. These great museums and institutions provide an educational opportunity for young and curious minds. In 2014, Friends of Balboa Park sponsored over 3,000 students, teachers and chaperones from this program.
At the close of the 2015-2016 school year, our scholarship funding summary can be found here. This scholarship program has been funded from generous donors, year round, and would not be able to do this without their support. We continually search for grants and sponsorship opportunities to ensure this program continues for the betterment of future generations. In addition to Friends of Balboa Park’s support the 2016-2017 field trips have also been sponsored by
