Delaware Division of the Arts accepts applications to the TranspARTation grant program on an ongoing basis. These grants support travel costs to Delaware arts and cultural institutions and venues so that students may attend events, performances, and exhibits that have high quality arts components. Eligible programs include the exhibition or presentation of guest artists or ensembles (not school shows or student groups).
All Delaware nonprofit K-12 public, private, or charter schools are eligible to apply for funding. Pre-K programs affiliated with public schools are also eligible to apply. Schools may receive only one TranspARTation Grant per school year. Title I schools may be considered for more than one TranspARTation Grant per school year if funding is available.
Schools may request funding to be used toward travel expenses, including buses, fuel, parking, and tolls associated with these trips. Grants are paid to the school as a reimbursement of eligible expenses after the Final Report is received by the Division. Schools are responsible for paying bus companies and other vendors directly.
Applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the field trip date. Applications are reviewed on a first-received, first reviewed basis starting August 15 of the current fiscal year, until all available funds have been awarded.
