All Title 1 Sponsorship funds for the school year 2013-2014 have been depleted. We expect to have additional funding for which you may apply for the upcoming school year and encourage you to watch our website for the publication of the Title 1 Sponsorship Application for 2014-2015 School Visits.
Space Center Houston has received a grant that will help support Title One Schools. We would like to provide the opportunity for all students to be inspired by the space program. If your school is designated as a Title One School we invite you to submit a proposal to our “Sponsorship Program.” Please understand that the “Sponsorship Program” resources are limited and should only be explored when all other avenues have been exhausted.
Space Center will offer a $5.95 rate per person to approved Title One Schools for field trips taken September 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014. This rate includes a discount of 50% off regular priced tickets. If you are approved, your intial amount of sponsored Title 1 tickets may be purchased at the rate of $5.95 for your students to visit Space Center Houston. One complimentary ticket will be provided for each complete set of 15 tickets purchased. Your admission will include all exhibits and attractions, as well as the giant screen films and the Discount Tire Tram Tour to NASA. Once you have applied for and been accepted by the Title 1 Sponsorship Program any additional tickets over the amount stated on the application will be at the rate of $10.95 per person. This offer is good while funds are available!
To apply for the “Sponsorship Program,” fill out a Sponsorship Application and return it to Space Center Houston at least two weeks prior to the date you would like to visit. Once your proposal is received, it will be reviewed and evaluated by Space Center Houston. Space Center Houston will contact the lead teacher to either confirm the date for his or her visit or explain why the discounted $5.95 admission cannot be awarded. Only complete applications will be accepted.
Please send your application as early as possible as funding for the program is limited.
