Program provides grants to underwrite the cost of field trips and admission fees for K-12 students to attend professional arts events such as live music, dance or theatre performances, and cultural exhibits at museums or other venues. There must be an arts focus to the field trip.
Priority will be given to schools and communities that lack access to arts or cultural programs due to geography, economic conditions, ethnic background or disability. Funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until all available funds are awarded.
Eligibility: Nebraska-accredited public or private schools or nonprofit organizations that serve pre-K-12 students.
Deadline: At least four weeks prior to the event date.
