MILES Grant Program for Schools
Please Note: The Center is currently only scheduling self-guided (teacher led) field trips. With health and safety precautions in mind, we have temporarily suspended our onsite guided tours. However, we can schedule you and your students for a virtual guided tour based on any of our onsite guided tours. We also offer a variety of other digital resources that we hope will enrich your classroom needs. We will update this page should this change. Links are provided below:
MILES assistance is still available for the 2020-2021 school year. However, we are currently not scheduling guided tours with these field trips. Educators can schedule virtual orientations and guided tours prior to your visit!!

Sinclair Oil Companies generously provides funding for a grant program for schools in the Rocky Mountain West to travel to the Buffalo Bill Center of the West for a field trip. This is a traveling grant that helps defray the cost of transportation and lodging, in whole or part, for our MILES (Museum Interpretation, Learning, and Enrichment for Students) program.

“My class and I could try for a hundred years and could not thank you enough for giving us the grant to go to Cody. It was the best field trip ever and I will never forget you for allowing us to go on this amazing trip. We learned so much and almost none of it could have been taught in a classroom.”
