The Museum places an emphasis on providing the state’s educators with the resources needed to educate and inspire the young people who will one day become California’s voters, decision-makers and leaders.
Through programs aligning with State content standards, the Museum’s interactive exhibits and hands-on learning opportunities offer a new read on California’s history, arts and culture for teachers and students alike.
Learning experiences extend beyond the classroom. But, due to budget cuts and decreased resources, many schools are finding it increasingly difficult to provide students with the first-hand learning opportunities provided on a field trip to a cultural institution or museum.
In response, the Museum offers field trip scholarships to eligible schools, helping to further our mission to educate, enlighten and inspire students through hands-on learning experiences and educational tools that bring California’s history, arts and culture alive for under-served children in our community.
As of May 10, 2016, all scholarships for the 2016-17 school year have been awarded. Applications may still be submitted through July 31, 2016. Qualifying applicants will be placed on a wait list and contacted if additional scholarships become available.
