MiSci’s Sponsors of Science Program supports nearly 15,000 students with free and reduced rate field trips each year through private and corporate donations.
Educators of students in grades PreK-12 with at least 75% of all students in the school/organization receiving free and reduced lunch are eligible to apply for funding assistance for science center general admission.
If you are interested in sponsorship, please apply for funding prior to booking your field trip. Review all details of the application thoroughly before submitting your application, as our process has changed.
Note that funding for field trips is now issued quarterly. Check the chart below to see when applications will be accepted and awards distributed.
