Bus Transportation Grants

Bring your students to the Minneapolis Institute of Art with a little help from the Friends!

Friends of the Institute is once again offering bus transportation grants for Metro area K-12 schools. The grants are intended to defray the cost of transportation so students can attend Mia and participate in a guide-led tour. Mia’s trained guides offer a variety of tours highlighting the museum’s permanent collection. Custom tours can be designed to coordinate with program studies and special interests. Tours last one hour and are available Tuesday through Friday.

Bus transportation grants will be awarded based on need. Grants will be a flat rate of $250 per bus, with a maximum of two buses per school. The grant amount will be paid directly to the school or program after the tour is taken. Tours covered by the bus grants must occur between October 15, 2022 and May 15, 2023.

Online applications are now closed. We welcome you to apply for the 2023-2024 school year in the fall. If you have any questions, please reach out to the Friends office.
