Field Trip & Program Scholarships

We can subsidize the cost of KHS admission and educational programs.

Each year, the Elizabeth Lloyd “Libby” Jones Student Scholarship Fund supports school field trips to the Kentucky Historical Society for qualifying schools and their teachers. Scholarship funds subsidize the cost of KHS admission and educational programs for students at-risk or from low-income districts. When paying as a group, chaperones pay the group rate of $5, and we require one chaperone per ten students.


  • Title I school
  • A homeschool qualifies when eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).


Scholarships are confirmed for applicants as a $0 balance in the school's confirmation invoice.

Remember: Regular school group admission is $5/person and includes all three KHS sites. Learning Labs are an additional $2/person. Virtual field trip options are $75/session, and our Host a Historian program is $75/session.

Applications are due 3 weeks before your requested visit date.

* This scholarship is named for former KHS president and KHS Foundation board member Elizabeth Lloyd “Libby” Jones.
