September 1 deadline to apply for field trip grants for schools and groups that serve low-income youth
Springfield, IL – Grants for field trips to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield are now available nationwide to schools and youth organizations with a high enrollment of low-income children.  The application deadline is September 1, 2011.
The Winnick Family Foundation is offering field trip grants through the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation to teachers of grades 4 through 12 in public and private schools nationwide that have a low-income enrollment of greater than 30 percent.  Not-for-profit youth organizations that serve economically disadvantaged children anywhere in America are also eligible.  The grants provide funding to visit the Presidential Museum at no or reduced cost by deferring the cost of transportation, lunch, or educational materials.  School groups receiving a grant do not pay a Museum admission fee.     
Visit http://www.presidentlincoln.org/education/WINNICK_Grant_Application.pdf  for grant applications, which must be postmarked by September 1, 2011.  The grant awards will be announced beginning October 1.  In 2010 a total of $20,000 was awarded to 19 schools.  For more information, call (217) 558-9016 or contact randy.wiseman@illinois.gov.
The field trip grants are coordinated through the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum’s Department of Education which provides educational opportunities for learners of all ages to explore Illinois and U.S. History and the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, through the museum and library collections.
