School Bus Travel Grant

Receive a Grant to Visit the Hoover Campus

The Hoover School Bus Travel Grant provides funds to help schools meet the transportation costs of educational field trips to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum and Herbert Herbert Hoover National Historic Site. The School Bus Travel Grant program is specifically intended to promote public education 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.

Grant Eligibility

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-12 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.

  • October 1 – Fall/Winter trips (between August 1st and December 31st)

Occasionally, there are funds available after deadlines have passed. Please contact Delene McConnaha to see if there are additional funds.
