Established in honor of Ruth Powell, a member of the very first class of docents in 1961, the Ruth Powell Museum Visit Fund provides scholarships to schools in need of funding for bus transportation to the museum. Schools must meet the minimum criteria of having a student body with a majority of low-income students. Please indicate on the tour application your desire for a scholarship, and you will receive notification of your award with your confirmation.
Scholarships reimburse schools for the cost of one standard school bus, up to $200.00. Schools will submit a copy of the bus company invoice and the canceled check after their museum visit, and funds will be mailed in approximately two to four weeks.
