Looking for a great way to inspire your students, but can’t find the funds you need to make it happen? Check out the Target® Field Trip Grants program. Learning opportunities extend far beyond the classroom. But schools are finding it more and more difficult to bring students to museums, historical sites and cultural organizations. Field Trip Grants help give children these unique, first-hand learning experiences. This year, Target will award 5,000 grants of up to $700 to help fund field trips to great educational destinations—like The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum!
Since launching the program in 2007, Target has awarded more than $16 million in grants — providing 2 million students in all 50 states with the opportunity to enhance their studies in the arts, math, science and social studies. As part of the program, each Target store will award three Target Field Trip Grants to K—12 schools nationwide—enabling one in 25 schools throughout the U.S. to send a classroom on a field trip. Each grant is valued up to $700. The grant program is administered by Target® Corporation and all requests need to be submitted by school teachers interested in visiting the Museum. The application for funding begins on August 1, 2012. Want to learn more and apply for a Target Field Trip Grant? Visit Target.com/grants for details.
