SPRINGFIELD -- Schools wanting
financial help to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and
Museum should act fast. Applications must be submitted by Sept. 3.
The Winnick Family Foundation is offering field trip grants through
the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation. The grants are
for fourth through 12th grade in public and private schools
nationwide that have a low-income enrollment above 30 percent.
The grants help defray the cost of transportation to the
presidential library and museum. Groups receiving a grant are also
exempt from the museum admission fee. A total of $20,500 is
available to distribute this year.
