AEF Field Trip Grants

P1060486AEF provides grants to teachers. Educators apply for Albany Education Foundation field trip grants early in the fall, and the grants are distributed in October.  These grants support specific educational outings that enrich existing programs  by helping keep the cost of trips at a lower rate for families.

Each field trip grant applicant receives a set amount per student, based on both the total number of students among all the applications and the type of trip.  The grant amount per student per day trip is about one half the amount per student per day for overnight trips.  Criteria for field trip grants is included in the Grant Application section

AEF made the following Field Trip Grants in October 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year.
