Scholarship Opportunities

Through the generosity of the William McDaniel Charitable Foundation, the Adler Planetarium is pleased to offer bus scholarships for field trips to the museum.

At this time, all 2019-2020 funding has been allocated. Applicants will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if funding becomes available.

Schools must meet the following criteria:

1. Part of the Chicago Public School system, including CPS charter and contract schools. We cannot offer scholarships to private or suburban schools at this time.

2. At least 51% of students must be classified as Low Income with the CPS Office of Research, Evaluation, and Accountability.

Schools may request funding for a maximum of two buses per school year. There are a limited number of scholarships available and they are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.


2019-2020 school year applications for the McDaniel Bus Scholarship program are open, however, funding has been fully allocated. Applicants are encouraged to apply, but will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if funding becomes available.

The application is available here and consists of an online form, a letter of intent on CPS letterhead signed by all participating teachers and the school principal, and proof of low-income status.

Please allow 10 business days from the time you submit a completed application to receive a decision and 30 days from date of the completed application to field trip date.
