COLUMBUS—State Representative Rob McColley (R-Napoleon) today announced that the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board and the Capitol Square Foundation will open their online application process for school transportation grants on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.


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:


• 1 to 50 miles:                    $200
• 51 to 100 miles:                $300
• 101+ miles:                       $400


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 would like to encourage the schools in my district to take advantage of this funding opportunity,” Representative McColley said. “Every student deserves the chance to view Ohio’s legislature up close and costs should never inhibit them from such a rewarding educational and civic experience.”
