Field Trip Scholarships

The Henry Ford is pleased to offer scholarships thanks to the generous support of: PNC Foundation, Hitachi Astemo Americas Inc., Karen Colina Wilson Foundation, The Henry Ford Community Investor corporate members and guests who have donated to The Henry Ford Field Trip Scholarship Fund.

Scholarships are available to educators whose school district (public, parochial or independent) reflects our mission on breaking innovation barriers and have not recently visited us under a grant.

Admission scholarships cover admission costs for students and group leaders to visit Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation or Greenfield Village.

Transportation reimbursement scholarships help cover the costs for visits to Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Village, Ford Rouge Factory Tour or Giant Screen Experience. Recipients of the transportation scholarship will be reimbursed after their field trip has occurred.
