Help with Field Trip Costs

Teachers have asked us for information about how to get help with covering the costs of field trips to the Michigan History Museum. We've learned of the following.

  • Target field trip grants
  • Schools often are able to get grants through local service organizations (such as Lions and Rotary clubs), local businesses and local foundations that want to make sure that their efforts directly support students in their communities.
  • schools with a 77% or greater free or reduced student lunch status may apply for the Michigan History Foundation admissions mini grant - DOC. Applications must be received at least four weeks in advance of your visit. Grants are only for general admission to the Michigan History Museum in Lansing; they do not cover our education programs or your transportation costs.
