Travel Grants

In order to be eligible for a travel grant, schools must be scheduled for one of our ranger/Glacier Institute-led, curriculum-based programs or for a service learning project with the Native Plant Nursery or Citizen Science Program. Grants of up to $300 can be awarded to help offset field trip expenses. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is depleted. Information about applying for a travel grant is sent once the field trip has been scheduled.

This money has been made possible through donations to the Glacier National Park Conservancy.
