If so, please describe:Scholarship RequestYes, I would like to apply for a scholarship.No, I will not be applying for a scholarship.Please read these instructions before applying for a scholarship. Scholarships for Guided School Tours Carnegie Museum of Art and Carnegie Museum of Natural History offer limited scholarship funding each year for K–12 schools 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 need. If you are applying for funding for your school, your student eligibility for the free and reduced school lunch program should be at least 20%. What does the funding cover? Depending upon available funding sources, grants may cover museum tour and admission fees, bus transportation, or some combination of both. Funding is contingent upon participation by your group in a museum educational program (guided tour or class program, or gallery-studio art workshop). 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 needs and our program costs. We receive many requests from schools, 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. How does bus funding work? If you are awarded bus funding, order your bus(es) as you usually would, and have the bus company send the invoice to us for payment. If that’s not possible, we can reimburse your school with an invoice from your business office. All invoices should be sent to the Group Visits Office at the above address. Invoices for busing must be received within 30 (thirty) days of your visit. Invoices received after that time may not be able to be paid.Percentage of students eligible for free or reduced school lunches * RequiredPlease use most recent available figures: these may be current or last school year.Are you applying for transportation funding? * RequiredYesNoApproximate cost per busPlease note that the following information is optional and is not used to determine eligibility.
