The Fort Nisqually Foundation offers a scholarship program for schools in the Puget Sound region.
Guided Educational Tours for Schools
The education staff at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum offer a variety of quality educational programs for all age groups from Elementary through High School. These tours reinforce classroom learning while focusing on Fort Nisqually's role in the development of the Puget Sound region.
The Foundation realizes that some schools do not have the economic resources to cover the costs associated with field trips to Fort Nisqually and offers scholarships to cover the cost of the program as well as bus transportation. This program has allowed many low-income schools to participate in this program over the past five years.
The Fort Nisqually Foundation would like to thank the employees of Metro Parks Tacoma for making the school tour scholarship fund at Fort Nisqually one of their funding priorities through their annual donation program - The Legacy Campaign - in 2013 and 2014.
