What if my student count changes?
Please be as accurate as possible when estimating how many students and adults will participate in the field trip. This will allow your classroom and other students in need of admission assistance to have a field trip this school year. Once you are awarded the admission scholarship, we understand your student and adult chaperone count may fluctuate.
- If your student and adult chaperone counts increase, the additional ticket costs must be covered by the school.
- If your student and adult chaperone counts decrease, this will be reflected in your scholarship award.
- Please call the Contact Center 313.982.6001 or email the Scholarship Committee (Scholarships@TheHenryFord.org) at least 24 hours prior to your visit with the most current participation counts.
