WonderLab – ASTC Fund-A-Bus Grants

WonderLab has received a grant from the Association of Science-Technology Centers (astc.org) that allows the museum to offer transportation reimbursement to Title I Schools for field trips. The Fund-A-Bus Program works as follows:

  • Title I schools may apply for $72 in reimbursement per busload of students, up to a maximum of 2 busloads per school ($144 maximum reimbursement).
  • Applications will be evaluated and funds awarded on a first-come first-served basis. Funds will be awarded after the field trip is completed.
  • In order to receive funding, a school must schedule a minimum of 50 children per busload to attend the field trip.
  • The Fund-A-Bus program will award 14 bus grants in all, serving 700-840 students and at least 7 different schools. WonderLab will keep the application process open until all funds are dispersed.
