This application is for schools seeking financial assistance through the Cincinnati Zoo's Living Classroom Education Access Fund (LCEAF) or funding we have received from the Department of Education (DOE). In order to qualify for financial assistance, 60% or more of your students must be enrolled to recieve free or reduced lunch (through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)).
The LCEAF grant and DOE funding has been providing students attending qualifying schools with free Zoo programming since 2012 and 2019, respectively.
In order to be considered, this application needs to be completed fully upon submission. Submission of this form does not guarantee registration for the dates requested.
Due to the nature of the video conferencing platform, capacity is limited. Grants are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.
Teachers may book more than one program. In order to accommodate large groups, teachers may need to book multiple program dates.
Please note that each program can accommodate multiple classes, therefore, we cannot guarantee that your school/class will be the only one in attendance.
