Scholarship / Funding Information
Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History offer limited scholarship funding each year for K–12 schools and groups who demonstrate financial need. If you are interested in applying for scholarship assistance, please review the guidelines below.
How do I know if I qualify?
Funding is based on financial need. Decisions about disbursements are made based on the table below.
|Indicator of Financial Need||% Scholarship to Allocate|
|40% students eligible for Free & Reduced Lunch||Up to 100% Scholarship|
|20-40% students eligible for Free & Reduced Lunch||Up to 50% Scholarship|
|<20% students eligible for Free & Reduced Lunch||Not Eligible for Scholarship Funds|
What does the funding cover?
Depending upon available funding sources, grants may cover a portion or all of your program and admission fees. Funding is contingent upon participation by your group in a museum educational program. Funding is not available for student lunches or unguided visits.
In order to extend funds to as many students as we can, we may offer partial funding based on your school’s or group’s needs and our program costs. We receive many requests and try to match every request with appropriate funding whenever possible, but group scholarship funds are limited.
How do I know if I received funding?
When we have received your application and visit request, we will check them against our group calendar and current funding opportunities, and email you with your visit dates and funding amounts.
