There are multiple travel grants you may be eligible to apply for to help make a Glacier field trip possible for your class.

Glacier National Park Travel Grants

Travel Grants for Ranger-Led Programs in Glacier National Park

Thanks to donations to the Glacier National Park Conservancy we will have travel grants available for the 2018-2019 school year. The grants are $300 for schools traveling 51 miles or greater (one-way) to their field trip destination. The grants are $200 for schools traveling 50 or less miles (one-way) to their field trip destination. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the available funding is depleted.

These grants are only available for schools that already have a confirmed, ranger or park staff-led program in Glacier National Park. Ranger-led program reservations can be made on-line starting August 20, 2018 at 8 am from the link on the Ranger-Led Field Trips page.


In order to be eligible for a grant, schools must be scheduled for one of our ranger-led, curriculum-based programs or for a service learning project with the Native Plant Restoration or Citizen Science program. Schools participating in a Glacier Institute Education Program at Big Creek and who are stopping at Apgar for the ranger-led program are also eligible to apply.


Please email our education office or call 406-888-7899 to apply for a travel grant. We will verify that you have a field trip scheduled. You will then be notified by email if Glacier National Park Conservancy is able to fill your request.
