Education Program Scholarships
The Sacramento Zoo strives to provide an outdoor educational experience to children of all ages regardless of their economic level. We offer many ways for children to foster an understanding and appreciation of wildlife through, year-round field trips, ZooMobiles which bring the Zoo to your classroom or summer camp. In an effect to continue this goal we are proudly offering grants to qualifying schools and families to experience the Zoo.
Zoo Fieldtrip Transportation Scholarship
Through a generous grant from the Kelly Foundation we are able to offer a scholarship for a limited number of schools. If you are interested in applying please download the application and email to Charlie Weiss, Corporate Sponsorship Manager.
The grant will cover up to $300.00 of transportation costs for one field trip to the Sacramento Zoo; the school group would pay the discounted admission rate to the Zoo. The field trip must be scheduled to visit between August 2013 and December 2013 to receive the grant bus funding; field trips for beyond December 2013 are not applicable.
