Program Guidelines

The Arbella Insurance Foundation BSO School Bus Program was created to help schools defray transportation costs associated with field trips to the BSO Youth Concerts and may award a grant of up to $300 to schools that meet the program eligibility requirements. With many schools facing difficult budgeting decisions, these funds were established to help expand current curriculums and allow your students the ability to experience the Boston Symphony Orchestra and historic Symphony Hall.


Any school serving grades K-12 is eligible to apply. BSO Youth Concerts are geared toward students in grades 4 through 6.

The field trip must be to a Boston Symphony Orchestra Youth Concert. For more information, please click here.

A maximum of TWO grants will be awarded per district, per school year. Schools are only eligible to receive one grant per school year.
