MILES Grant Program for Schools
Sinclair Oil 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.

We now offer scholarships to schools throughout the region that cover the cost of admission for school field trips to the Center. Thank you to Sinclair Oil for making these funds available. Contact the School Services office at (307)578-4028 to apply or complete this scholarship application.

“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.”
