Target Corporation is accepting applications from education professionals for the Target Field Trip Grants program to bring K-12 students in the United States to museums, historical sites, and cultural
organizations. Since launching the program in 2007, Target has awarded $9.76 million in grants — providing 1.2 million students in all fifty states with the opportunity to enhance their studies in the arts, math, science, and social studies. Grants are intended to fund visits to art, science, and cultural museums; community service or civic projects; career enrichment opportunities; and other events or activities away from the school facility.
As part of the program, each Target store will award three Target Field Trip Grants to K-12 schools nationwide, enabling one in 25 schools throughout the U.S. to send a classroom on a field trip.
