Bus Scholarships

The Museum of Science offers scholarships to help subsidize bus expenses to qualifying schools visiting the Museum on a field trip. The Museum offers up to $350 dollars toward the expense of one bus for schools within New England. Funding is limited and distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Some restrictions apply.

Qualifying schools must have 35% or greater participation in free/reduced lunch program or equivalent demonstrated financial need.

Schools are responsible for making all bus arrangements and paying the bus company of choice up front. Schools must provide documentation of bus payment before scholarship is issued. All scholarships will be issued after documentation is received and only after the field trip visit date.
