Target Corporation Expands Student Field Trip Grant

Program Deadline: November 1, 2007

A philanthropic program of Target Corporation ( http://www.target.com/ ), the Target Field Trip Grant program will award grants to schools across the United States for field trips in the spring of 2008.

Grant-funded field trips may involve museum, environmental, or science projects; artistic and cultural experiences; and civics or community service projects. Grants may not be used for salaries or equipment. Education professionals, 18 years or older, who are employed by an accredited K-12 public, private, or charter school in the U.S. that maintain a 501(c)(3) or a 509(a)(1) tax-exempt status are eligible to apply. Educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, or classified staff of these institutions must be willing to plan and execute a field trip that will provide a demonstrable learning experience for students.

Previous recipients of a Target Field Trip Grant are not eligible to apply. Up to 1,600 grants of up to $1,000 each will be awarded in February 2008.
