K-12 Field Trips to Battlefield Sites Supported
The American Battlefield Trust strongly believes that battlefields are outdoor classrooms—truly unique locations for education, commemoration, and contemplation. The Trust's Field Trip Fund provides funding and assistance to K-12 teachers who are planning field trips to Civil War, War of 1812, or Revolutionary War battlefields, museums, and historic sites. The following items can be covered by the Fund: transportation, meals, admission fees, and reasonable presenter or guide fees. All funds will be dispersed after the completion of the field trips. Approved trips can be reimbursed for as little as $250 or as much as $1,500. Applications must be submitted at least one month prior to the trip. Visit the Trust’s website for application guidelines.
