About State House Express

Give Students a Front-Row Seat to Democracy-Climb Aboard the State House Express.

This small grants program provides awards of $500 to eligible teachers of government, civics, history, and other social studies classes in grades 4 through 12. The grants are designed to help pay for bus rental costs to take classes on field trips to the State House in Trenton for special guided tours and first-hand examination of the legislature’s role in our system of representative democracy.

The State House Express program is funded by the New Jersey Legislature and is administered by the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University in collaboration with the Office of Legislative Services at the State House in Trenton.
