The LCC Field Trip Program funds cultural field trips for children in grades Pre-K through 12 by subsidizing the cost of admission to attend programs in the arts, humanities and interpretive scientists (including performances, educational tours, and exhibits) for the calender year. The purpose of the program is to:
• Provide children with access to high-quality arts and cultural experiences.
• Extend learning beyond classroom walls through cultural field trips.
Remember, you can use funds not only for performances but also for museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, DeCordova Museum, and Gardner Museum. Boston has some of the best museums in the country and they all have exceptional Education Departments. Take advantage of these local resources!
In Somerville, a funded grant will reimburse the applicant in part or full for the cost of the tickets but not transportation costs. Tickets for your field trips must be purchased in advance by the applicant.
Please download the guidelines and application in the Form section of this site.
The MCC's Big Yellow School Bus grant program does provide funding specially for school bus transportation for attending events. Check out that program here.
