The Enrichment Fund provides assistance to Guilford County students with financial needs that might prevent them from participating in overnight school trips within NC, to VA, or to Washington, D.C.
Students may request up to 50% of the per-person cost (up to $100) for a field trip.
Students enrolled in grades K-12 are eligible to apply.
Seniors are not eligible for scholarships for programs occurring after graduation.
Students with the greatest financial need will be given priority.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, applications from students with an annual family income of more than $20,000 will not be considered. Please note that families making less than $20,000 are not guaranteed funding.
Scholarship funds will be awarded until the funds budgeted for the year are depleted.
Scholarships for group field trips are only available for destinations within North Carolina or VA, or to Washington, D.C.
October 15, January 15, and March 15
Teachers are encouraged to submit students’ applications as early as possible to maximize their chances of receiving financial assistance for their field trips. Teachers may apply at any time during the year, but should not expect to receive notice of scholarships awarded until at least three weeks after the relevant application deadline.
Complete the online Field Trip Detail Report and Student Information section.
Submit a signed Parent Verification Form for each student and mail them in ALPHABETICAL ORDER to the Enrichment Fund for the Guilford County Schools, Inc., P.O. Box 10208, Greensboro, NC 27404.
Within 45 days after the field trip, the Enrichment Fund must receive:
1. A detailed list of the scholarship recipients with the amount granted to each student and the amount of scholarship money used for each student.
2. A check for the total amount of all unused scholarship funds.
If a school fails to comply with these requirements, it will be barred from consideration for future scholarships for at least one year.
