Transportation Grant

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has received a legacy grant to support educational outreach to Central New York students. This grant will service under-resourced youth in our backyard, who otherwise may be unable to visit Cooperstown and access the Museum’s education programs.

If your school is interested in applying for a grant to help offset costs for a field trip to the Museum, please review the guidelines and complete the online application. Grants will be awarded on a case-by-case basis.
