Even though all museum guided school tours are FREE, the cost of bus transportation can be an obstacle for teachers. From time to time the museum is able to subsidize transportation costs thanks to generous support from local foundations. Did you know that Target Corporation also subsidizes bus transportation for field trips?
Since 2007 Target Corporation has been offering Field Trip Grants of up to $700 to K-12 schools nationwide. The grant cycle opens at noon (CST) on August 1 and closes at noon (CST) on September 30. Applications are only accepted online. Applicants will receive notification by January 1.
