Eligible schools must have at least 50% of students on the free and reduced meal program to be considered for this scholarship opportunity. If you received confirmation that your class has been awarded an OSO transportation scholarship, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Arrangements for transportation to and from the OSO program will be the responsibility of the teacher or group leader participating.
  • Buses must be billed to the school or organization applying for assistance. Scholarships will be paid by reimbursement to the school or group.
  • Transportation invoices must be received by no later than June 20th of the school year transportation was provided. OSO cannot pre-pay for buses.
  • Invoices received after June 19, 2023 will not be paid. Invoices must include a cover sheet with instructions for payment information sufficient to allow OSO staff to return payment.

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.
