By launching the Target Field Trip Grants program in 2007, the Target Corporation has provided millions of students in all 50 states with the opportunity to experience learning outside the classroom to enhance their studies in the arts, math, science and social studies.
If teachers and administrators in your area are struggling to fund visits to a local museum, historical site, or other cultural destination, Target Corporation can help.
All educators, teachers and principals wishing to plan a field trip for students are eligible to apply, including previous grant recipients. Applicants must provide brief descriptions (no more than 2,000 words) of the field trip and its benefits, as well as a breakdown of expenses. Funds may be used to cover field trip-related costs such as transportation, ticket fees, resource materials and supplies. Other criteria for selection of grant recipients include the field trip's tie-in to the school's curriculum and the number of students who will be involved. Each grant is valued up to $700.
Both teachers and museums can take advantage of this opportunity.
Target Field Trips grant applications are accepted: August 1 through September 30
