Thank you for your interest in The Longwood Grant for Title 1 Schools. The application for the 2018-19 school year has closed. Applications for the 2019-20 school year will open August 5, 2019.

The Longwood Grant for Title 1 Schools provides the opportunity for schools to come to Longwood Gardens to participate in a 90-minute K-12 curriculum-based program. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first served basis to those schools that have 30% or more of the student population qualifying for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program. A teacher may only apply for the grant one time per school year.

  • Completed application
  • Letter on school letterhead signed by the school's principal stating the percent of students receiving free or reduced lunch

Please refer to the K-12 Availability Calendar to determine date and time preferences.
