The grants are available to help Ohio schools, which receive state funding, defray the cost of field trips to the Ohio Statehouse and are based on one-way mileage from the visiting school to Columbus.  There are 25 grants available in each of the following mileage categories, for a total of 75 grants:

Limited to fourth through 12th grade trips during the 2017-2018 school year, the grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and have been known to be awarded within a matter of minutes of the grant application process opening.


“I want to thank the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board for making these grants available to our school districts and students,” said Rep. Landis. “I would highly encourage administrators and teachers to look into these grants and give their students a real opportunity to see our capitol and the history associated with it.”
