The Hoover School Bus Travel Grant provides funds to help schools meet the transportation costs of educational field trips to the Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. The School Bus Travel Grant program is specifically intended to promote public education about and appreciation for Herbert Hoover. While we would like to cover all the costs of visits to the Hoover Campus, these funds are intended to subsidize travel costs. The program, funded entirely through contributions from private individuals, corporations, and foundations, is specifically intended to promote public education about and appreciation for Herbert Hoover.
To be eligible to apply, the school must be a public, private, home or charter school; non-profit and tax-exempt that provides daily education to K-12th grade students. Schools with a Title I status or high reduced lunch percentage will be given priority. The Bus Travel Grant will be used solely to visit the Herbert Hoover Campus.
The Travel Bus Grant Application Form must be received by the deadlines:
• October 1 – Fall/Winter Trips (between August and December 31st)
• March 1 – Spring Trips (between January and June)
