This financial support is offered exclusively to primary schools in NSW receiving Resource Allocation Model (RAM) funding with an FOEI of 100 and over. With a diverse range of programs delivered at some of the most important cultural and heritage sites in NSW, the travel subsidy aims to improve access and increase participation by students in curriculum-linked excursions.

After assisting almost 30,000 students, all the available funding has been allocated. This means any further applications for excursions in terms 1 and 2 in 2018 will not be accepted.

Sydney Living Museums is working towards accessing more funding for terms 3 and 4 in 2018. We would still like to encourage eligible schools to visit the Unlocking heritage web page and register their expression of interest to be placed on a waiting list.
