Application Form for the 2017–2018 School Year

The Bernard J. Rothwell School Bus Fund was established in 2006 to subsidize bus transportation for Gallery Instructor guided tours from October 2017 to March 2018. The fund was made possible by a grant from the Paul Taylor and Adeline Gertrude Magrane Rothwell Philanthropic Fund at the recommendation of a current Gallery Instructor. A limited number of $250 grants are available.
