FRANKFORT, Ky. — Schools across Kentucky still have time to apply for a Kentucky Arts Council TranspARTation Grant.

The application deadline is May 18 for field trips scheduled from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.

The TranspARTation Grant is now in its third year and is awarded three times per year. Grants are based on the mileage from the school building to the arts organization or performance venue and the number of buses necessary. There is a minimum grant amount of $100.

Any Kentucky public or private school that supports grades pre-K through 12 may apply for a TranspARTation Grant.

Schools receiving TranspARTation Grants must attend arts events presented by one of many preapproved TranspARTation organizations.

For more information about applying for a TranspARTation Grant, visit the TranspARTation webpage, or contact Jean St. John, arts council arts education director, at jean.stjohn@ky.gov or 502-564-3757, ext. 486.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, fosters environments for Kentuckians to value, participate in and benefit from the arts. Kentucky Arts Council funding is provided by the Kentucky General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts. The arts council, along with the NEA, is celebrating 50 years of service in 2015, which the arts council is recognizing as the Year of the Arts in Kentucky.
