United Arts Council

Wheels on the Bus Fund

A fund to bring Wake County students to area arts and cultural destinations!

Wheels on the Bus grants provide funds to move one grade level per school per year at Wake County elementary schools for field trips to area arts and cultural destinations. Title I schools are given priority as they have student populations with 40-80 percent of student bodies receiving free or reduced lunch assistance.

Schools must choose their field trip destination from a list of available options. The fund will cover transportation costs for the field trip and may help defray entrance costs (if any), on a limited basis. Field trips must take place during the school day.  Schools may submit only one application per school year. 

Deadline to apply for 2018-19 school year: Friday, September 21, 2018 at 5 pm
