Target Field Trip Grants
The Target Field Trip Grants program will award grants to K-12 educators, teachers, principals, para-professionals, or classified staff to fund field trips for their students. Up to 800 grants of $1,000 each will be awarded to educators throughout the United States. Examples of eligible field trips include art, science, and cultural museum visits; civics projects; career enrichment opportunities, etc. Education professionals who are employed by an accredited K-12 public, private or charter school in the U.S. that maintains a 501(c)(3) or a 509(a)(1) tax exempt status are eligible to apply. Funds may be used to cover field trip-related costs such as transportation, ticket fees, resource materials, and supplies. Applications must be submitted online by November 1, 2006.
