We offer SmarTrip scholarships to registered teens who do not have a DC One Card with metro benefits. SmarTrip cards will cover the cost of three to six round trips to ARTLAB and must only be used for getting to and from the Museum. Teens who are eligible for the scholarship may pick up their cards in person during drop-in hours. Apply here.
