Field Trip Scholarships

Chicago Children’s Museum’s mission is to improve children’s lives by creating a community where play and learning connect. We strive to cultivate spaces and experiences that reflect the larger Chicagoland community, and remove barriers to play.

That’s why we offer the Chicago Children’s Museum Field Trip Scholarship Program. This need-based program is designed to reduce financial barriers to CCM field trips and group visits.

All field trip and group visit requests are considered for the Field Trip Scholarship Program. When you fill out the field trip request form, you’ll answer a range of questions about your school or organization’s offerings, as well as the families, children, and communities you support.

Requests are reviewed on a rolling basis and approval is based on availability. Groups who receive support from the Field Trip Scholarship Program will be required to complete a post-visit survey within 5 days of the group visit.
