The Share the Story Scholarship Fund helps eligible schools bring students to experience The Hershey Story.
The Hershey Story believes every student should experience the sense of wonder and connection to the past that a museum provides. The artifacts, personal stories and hands-on activities can inspire kids to become life-long museum lovers who enjoy learning.
Qualifying schools may apply for funds to cover the cost of a field trip to The Hershey Story, and a portion of transportation fees.
Who is eligible?
Any Pennsylvania school that has 75% or more students who are eligible for free- or reduced-price lunches under the National School Lunch program.
What can the funds be used for?
The scholarship funds may be used for student admission fees to visit The Hershey Story with their school.
If transportation costs will prohibit a field trip, scholarship funds may be used to cover up to $200 per bus for a field trip to The Hershey Story. We encourage teachers to look for alternative funding for transportation in order to make the fund available to as many students as possible.
What programs are available?
- Museum EduQuest
- Chocolate Lab
When can we visit?

How do we apply?
