Community Foundation of New Jersey

Additional Field Trip Funding Available

September 11, 2017

The Field Trip New Jersey fund is re-opening its application process, with additional funding available for field trips taking place in 2017. If you missed the original deadline, or are learning about this opportunity for the first time, now is your chance to seize a unique opportunity for your students.

To apply, click here. The deadline is October 15th, with grant announcements expected in mid-November.

Remember, all public and charter K-12 schools in New Jersey with more than 65 percent of students eligible for free or reduced price lunches are eligible to apply. Grants from Field Trip New Jersey are intended to cover the transportation costs of trips. For additional detail, click for the Grant Guidelines.

We could not have helped facilitate so many field trips in the past year – including to places like the Liberty Science Center, Atlantic County Park, and Ellis Island – without the generous support of our fundholders and partner organizations, including the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the Victoria Foundation, the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation, the PSEG Foundation, and the New Jersey Historical Commission.
