One of Last Years winners for Maryland: Crofton Meadows Es

Some of the best learning opportunities happen outside the classroom. We’re bringing students once-in-a-lifetime learning experiences through field trips they’ll never forget.

background
It’s become increasingly difficult for schools to fund learning opportunities outside the classroom. To help them out, we launched Target Field Trip™ grants in 2007. Since then, we’ve made it possible for millions of students to go on a field trip.

guidelines
As part of the program, Target stores award Target Field Trip™ grants to K-12 schools nationwide. Each grant is valued up to $700. We accept grant applications between noon CST Aug. 1 and 11:59 p.m. CT Oct. 1.

Target education online grant applications are accepted during the timeframe below:

  • Target Field Trip™ grants – opens at noon (CST) on Aug. 1 and closes at noon (CST) on Sept. 30

Once the application is completed online, you will need to click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the last page of the application to submit your application electronically on the internet. Once your application has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you used to create your online grant application account. Please add cgsupport@cybergrants.com to your email address book (or friendly senders) to ensure that these messages arrive in your inbox.
