Bus Scholarship Application

This school year (2019-2020), the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is offering free bus scholarships to schools, helping to make sure that schools around the city have the opportunity to experience everything our collection has to offer. Scholarships are for preschool through 8th grade classes and are given on a basis of need. Each school that receives a bus scholarship gets up to three free buses to the Conservatory. To be eligible for a scholarship, the school must be a Title 1 school in the City of Chicago.

Each school that receives a bus scholarship will get up to two free buses to the Conservatory. Recipients of the scholarship will work with Conservatory staff to plan a visit to the collection in the 2019-2020 academic year. Please have a date for your field trip (between October 15th and March 31st) in mind before filling out the application.

Please fill out the questions below. Send any questions to groups@garfieldpark.org. Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are due on October 1st, 2019. For all scholarship recipients, please see below for more information about fulfilling your scholarship.
