About the Nebraska Experience

The Nebraska Experience School Bus Grant program celebrates our sesquicentennial by providing 4th grade students the opportunity to visit the State Capitol or another historically or culturally significant Nebraska site during the 2017-18 school year.

A partnership with the Nebraska Arts Council’s (NAC), the Nebraska Experience is modeled after the organization’s long-time School Bus for the Arts Grant program. The Nebraska150 Celebration will underwrite the cost of school buses as well as admission fees to museums and other venues across the state.  All Nebraska-accredited public and private schools are eligible to participate as well as Nebraska-based nonprofit organizations that have federal tax-exempt status (501c3) that serve home school students residing in Nebraska.

Please read the read the GUIDELINES prior to submitting the grant application, each school must have a confirmed reservation with one of the Nebraska Experience Approved Sites prior to applying online.  A digital copy of a confirmation from each site you plan to visit will be required in order to sumbit the grant application form.
