Thanks to donations to the Glacier National Park Conservancy we will have travel grants available for the 2016-2017 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.
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.
Teachers complete the on-line travel grant form. It will automatically be sent to Glacier's Education Specialist who will verify that you have a ranger-led field trip to the park scheduled. You will then be notified by email if the Glacier National Park Conservancy is able to fill your request.
