For those who submitted a 2022-23 transportation scholarship application, our staff are actively reviewing applications and will be in touch over the summer. Please note that we cannot guarantee transportation reimbursement for all eligible classes.

Each application is treated as a separate class trip. We cannot guarantee that all eligible applicants from the same school will receive a transportation scholarship. Eligible schools must have at least 50% of students on the free and reduced meal program.

  • Buses must be billed to the school or organization applying for assistance. Scholarships will be paid by reimbursement to the school or group.
