Tryon Palace launches scholarship program for Title I schools

NEW BERN, NC (WITN) - Tryon Palace is launching a scholarship program to help students at Title I schools pay for field trips to the New Bern historical site.

"Palace Scholars" applications open on January 14 for the 2019/2020 school year.

The grant-funded program will cover all field-trip associated costs, including, but not limited to: transportation, admissions, and substitute teacher fees.

In a press release, The Tryon Palace Foundation said, "In recognizing the difficult expense field trips may present to school districts across the state, Palace Scholars has a goal of ensuring all students - regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic background - have the opportunity to benefit from multidisciplinary programs that provide supplementation to traditional curriculum."

Applications for next school year will be open through March 1, 2019.
