Fund A Bus Application

CSC is happy to announce we will provide reimbursement costs for Title 1 schools with field trips to CSC. We have $1,000 to award to applying schools for their transportation costs. This money comes from ASTC (Association of Science & Technology Centers) which allowed member institutions to apply for this funding (called Fund A Bus) in the fall of this year. Winners were drawn from qualified applicants.

Money will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Schools must complete an application, certifying they are eligible and provide demographic data needed for the final report. Funds can only be applied to upcoming field trips. Schools have 5 business days to schedule a trip if it is not already scheduled at the time of their application for Fund A Bus money. Money will be awarded as applications come in and will not be more than was requested in the application. The final award may be a partial reimbursement (so that all funds can be used).
