TEACHERS: Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) offers Field Trip Assistance Grants - DEADLINE 11/15

Schools can apply for help with admission and transportation costs to DIA by Nov. 15

Thanks to a generous grant from Target, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is able to provide assistance for museum admission and transportation costs for a limited number of school field trips for students in grades three through 12. Teachers must apply for the financial aid by Nov. 15 for museum field trips planned for Jan. through March 2012.

“Target’s initiative is especially welcome in the current economic climate,” said Graham W. J. Beal, DIA director. “By providing financial assistance to schools that might not otherwise be able to afford field trips to the DIA, Target is helping us introduce thousands of children to the wonders of art.”

This is the second year Target has provided the field trip grant to the DIA. Last year the museum was able to serve close to 7,000 students in 88 schools in the metro Detroit area.

Teachers can apply for assistance by going to and choosing either “set up a guided visit” or “set up a self-guided visit.” The application must be submitted by Nov. 15. The words “Target Grant Request” should be entered into the “Special Needs” box on the form.

Awards will be made to reflect a wide geographic and grade level distribution. Title One schools will receive additional consideration. Applicants will be notified about awards by email before Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011.
