The Adelia Wilson Endowment

The Adelia Wilson Endowment offers financial assistance to offset transportation and admission costs to the Alexander Ramsey House.

Eligibility:

  • Students need to be in grades K through 12 and scheduled to visit the Alexander Ramsey House.
  • Schools do not need to meet any Title I, Federal Free and Reduced Lunch or other economic need requirements.
  • Field trip to an MNHS historic site or museum must take place between September 1, 2018 and June 9, 2019.
  • If your school is not eligible, please visit our scholarships, grants, and subsidies page to see other financial assistance available.

How It Works:

  • Funds are limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Eligible schools will receive free admission for all students.
  • Eligible schools will be reimbursed for bussing after bus invoice is submitted to scholarships@mnhs.org.
  • Schools may apply annually; having received a reward in a previous year does not make a school ineligible.
  • The Adelia Wilson Endowment may not be used in combination with other MNHS transportation subsidies on the same field trip date.
