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 encourage all eligible schools in the 51st House District to apply for these grants,” said Rep. Retherford. “Visiting the Ohio Statehouse is a great way for students to learn how public policy is made and inspire the future leaders of our state.”
