How Will I Be Notified If I Have Been Awarded a Grant?

All applicants will be notified of their status by e-mail. Recipients will also be notified by USPS.

How Are Grants Paid?

The grant will be paid three weeks prior to the recipient's scheduled field trip date to the Museum.  The grant check will be made payable to the school, designated for field trip use and mailed to the administrator at the school mailing address provided in the application. The administrator will be notified that the grant funds are designated for use by the grant applicant.

When Must a Grant Be Used?

Grants must be used for the proposed field trip between September 2013 and May 2014. In the event a recipient does not implement the field trip by May 2014, the grant will be forfeited and the funds must be returned to the BMA.  Any tax liability is the responsibility of the school.

Who Is Eligible For a Grant?

Education professionals, 18 years or older, who are employed by an accredited K-12 public, private or charter school in the Miami, Broward or Palm Beach counties that maintain a 501(c)(3) or a 509(a)(1) tax exempt status are eligible to apply for a BMA Field Trip Grant. Educators, teachers, principals or certified staff of these institutions must be willing to plan and execute a field trip that will provide a demonstrable learning experience for students.

How Are Grant Recipients Selected?

The BMA Field Trip Grants program is managed and administered entirely by BMA. BMA will evaluate applications and make a final selection of grant recipients based on the following criteria:

  • Applicant's description of the field trip and its objectives.
  • Benefits to students, including overall student learning experience, relevance to curriculum and number of students who will benefit from the grant.
  • Use of funds.

If selected to receive a BMA Field Trip Grant, the applicant must provide verification by the school superintendent, principal or immediate supervisor that the proposed trip date and other information given in the application has been approved.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
