Date: January 8, 2014 - March 31, 2014

Thank you for considering a partial scholarship to attend a Tollgate Education Center field trip or traveling program. We are grateful to the Americana Foundation and our other corporate sponsors who make possible partial grant funds to help schools with limited resources offset the total cost of attendance.
These partial scholarships are for our spring season (now through mid-June) and applications are due on March 31, 2014. Although the deadline for application is March 31st, you may apply for a scholarship for a program through mid-June. If you are interested in attending a fall event, please email us with your information.
MSU Tollgate Education Center programs work to connect schools with local agriculture and give children positive experiences with “Good Food” through the different aspects of Farm to School: farm field trips, school gardens, cooking with local foods, and sourcing local foods in school meal programs.
In applying for a scholarship, please provide as much information as possible. We ask that you answer a few questions that incorporate our scholarship program criteria: schools with a high percentage of students receiving free and reduced lunch, proposals that demonstrate in-class before and after field trip activities, and integration of a Tollgate trip into a unit of study and connection to Grade Level Content Standards and/or Common Core requirements.
Partial scholarships will be awarded to offset the cost of attendance for the specific program your group will be attending. The partial scholarships will be attached to your invoice before you receive it (and before you need to pay). The scholarships will not act as refunds.
Priority will be given to classes that have not received this grant in the past. Thank you for taking time to tell us about your group! We will be in touch with you, but of course, feel free to contact us as well.
