Attention teachers: Here is money for your science projects! CAST members may apply for up to a $200.00 mini-grant to supplement their science program. Mini-grants are available for elementary, secondary and college-level teachers.
Just complete the online application. The CAST board will review requests at their next board meeting, make selections, and notify applicants. Grants will be awarded until allotted funds are depleted and winners will be announced on the web site and in the next newsletter. Hurry and submit your applications before funds run out.
No more than one grant will be awarded to any one school in a two year period. In order for the money to have maximum impact, grants that utilize funds for non-consumable items will be given preference. In order to be fully considered, mini-grant applications must include the quantity of materials to be purchased with grant funds, as well as the exact expense for the materials. Applicants must be a member for at least one year before applying for the grant.
Mail-in grant requests should include a short letter telling us how you would use the money to supplement your classroom budget to strengthen your science program, including the quantity of materials to be purchased and the exact expense for the materials. Be as specific as you can including catalog numbers if possible. Send to Elnore Grow, 17394 Jurassic Road, Morrison CO 80465 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
