Bus Grant Program

Get financial assistance for transportation costs associated with your school’s field trip to the African American Museum of Iowa.

The African American Museum of Iowa Bus Grant Program funds up to $100 for Cedar Rapids area institutions and $130 for institutions outside of Cedar Rapids. Grants are awarded by the AAMI staff to the educational institutions that shows the greatest need.


Institutions applying for the grant must not have already been for a study trip during the course of the school year. The school must have at least 10 percent of students on free or reduced lunch.

Grants are for grades 3 through 12.
