For school fields trips during 2015-16 school year
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 17, 2015) — The application deadline for a TranspARTation Grant from the Kentucky Arts Council is Aug. 17 for field trips scheduled from Oct. 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.
The grant’s purpose is to offset the cost of transportation to and from arts venues for school field trips. Grants are based on the round trip mileage from the school building to the arts organization or performance venue and the number of buses necessary. There is a minimum grant amount of $100.
Any Kentucky public or private school that supports grades pre-K through 12 may apply for a TranspARTation Grant. Schools receiving TranspARTation Grants must attend arts events presented by one of many preapproved TranspARTation organizations.
