Grants to New Jersey charter and public K-12 schools for educational trips. The purpose of this grant program is to give children from underserved and low-income communities the opportunity to experience trips related to culture, arts, science, history, and nature, and to visit college campuses. Funding is intended to connect classroom learning with real-life experiences and enable students to envision themselves as future college students, researchers, artists, and leaders. Educators at schools in districts serving a majority of low-income students may apply for grants to cover transportation costs for field trips in New Jersey, and to visit college campuses throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Field Trip New Jersey funds can be used to support a wide range of field trips including arts, cultural, history, and science venues, explore New Jersey’s natural wonders, and travel to college campuses to help further student’s efforts to pursue a college education. The Foundation is interested in having schools visit diverse institutions that offer different kinds of experiences to students. See the list of opportunities and locations pulled together by the New Jersey Historical Commission in Supporting Documents below.

Funds may be used for bus expenses only, but may support more than one bus for the same trip.

The Field Trip New Jersey Fund gives priority to field trips in New Jersey that get students outside their districts, although the Foundation realizes that sometimes there are adventures within the school district city that will be appropriate. 

Schools may apply for funds to transport students on college tours in New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, District of Columbia, and Maryland, as well as New Jersey.
