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 and the application period has ended.

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 now closed.

Questions? Please email busscholarship@adlerplanetarium.org.

The Adler Planetarium is grateful to the William McDaniel Charitable Foundation for supporting bus scholarships.
