Despite a thriving cultural neighborhood in downtown Tulsa, many low-income students spend little time in the core of the city. Students need to believe that Tulsa is a city they can live in, contribute to, and a place that welcomes them. In order to build strong bonds between our promising students and the city of Tulsa, the George Kaiser Family Foundation, in conjunction with many other generous donors, are excited to foster a grant opportunity for Title I schools in the Tulsa area.
Explore Downtown Tulsa exposes students to the cultural and historical treasures of our downtown area, allowing them to dream big in their academic and personal pursuits. Teachers from Title I schools within a 30 mile radius of of downtown Tulsa can can submit ideas for field trips and receive funding for bus transportation. The program is designed to encourage visits to multiple locations during a single field trip.
