Scholarship Programs, Admission Waivers, and Bus Scholarships

Scholarship Programs

We are committed to quality education and providing every student with the opportunity to benefit from our curriculum-based school experiences. To ensure that under-resourced schools can take part in our school experiences, we offer two scholarship programs.

Admission Waivers

Scholarships are available for museum admission for all Title I schools. Please indicate your Title I status on your registration form or contact education@wdfmuseum.org for more info.

Bus Scholarships

Bus scholarships are available for field trips scheduled during the academic year for Title I schools in the San Francisco Unified School District. Teachers are responsible for booking their own buses.

Outreach Programs

The Walt Disney Family Museum strives to serve the Bay Area’s diverse school communities through in-depth and engaging outreach programming. The museum’s education team currently partners with four Title I schools in the greater Bay Area through the Animated Classrooms: Museum-School Partnership Program, providing trips to the museum, classroom visits, and family celebrations for preschool through 6th grade classrooms. Museum educators collaborate with teachers to integrate core curriculum with the art of animation, creating learning experiences that inspire imagination, creativity, and innovation in their students. To learn more about the Animated Classrooms program, please contact education@wdfmuseum.org.
