COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) 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.


“This is a wonderful opportunity for Fairfield County students to experience the history of state government in Ohio and to learn more about their responsibilities as citizens and future leaders in our state,” Rep. Schaffer said. “I wholeheartedly encourage schools to submit their applications and make plans to bring their students to come visit. Also, please contact my office so we can make arrangements to greet your groups when they come to Columbus.”
