Mini Grant Application

Mini Grant Application - General Rules

Mini Grants are to provide support for Technology & Engineering Education Teachers in their effort to develop new and innovative strategies for teaching and presenting curriculum. Teacher's efforts are supported by funds to purchase necessary materials. Teachers are awarded $500 and there is a limited number of awards given every year. Funds may be used to purchase materials and supplies, but may not be used to purchase services. The successful Mini Grant Recipients will be announced at the NYSTEEA Annual Conference. Award winners will be asked to provide both written and photo documentation of the project to be used in a future issue of the NYSTEEA journal and/or electronic newsletter. Mini Grant Award winners are expected to share their teaching with other Technology & Engineering Teachers at the Annual Conference the following year.
