Target: Field Trip GrantsDeadline: October 1, 2019
It’s become increasingly difficult for schools to fund learning opportunities outside the classroom. To help out, the Target field trip grants were launched in 2007. Applications are evaluated based on the following criteria:
- Applicant’s description of the field trip and its objectives
- Benefits to the students, including overall student learning experience, relevance to curriculum, and number of students who may benefit from the grant
- Proposed use of funds
- Trip to be taken between January 1, 2020 and the end of the 2019-20 academic year (May/June 2020)
Amount: Over 3,600 grants of up to $700 each will be awarded.
Eligibility: Education professionals who are at least 18 years old and employed by an accredited K-12 public, private, or charter school in the U.S that maintains a 501(c)(3) or 509(a)(1) tax-exempt status are eligible to apply. Educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, or classified staff of these institutions must be willing to plan and execute a field trip that will provide a demonstrable learning experience for students.
