The Robert Jeffrey Grant for High School Projects ($500.00) &
The Sandy Stewart Grant for Post-Secondary School Projects ($1000.00)
These grants are available to students or alumni of Canadian High Schools.
The grants are offered in support of interdisciplinary school projects: their intent is to encourage interactions between disciplines and subjects sometimes at odds (i.e.: math & poetry; architecture and music), and which will result in concrete outcomes (a work of art, exhibition, performance, presentation, or similar.)
Interested students should submit an application, outlining the form and intent of the project, the names of collaborators and their affiliations, and how the project adheres to the goals of the program stated above.
Students may request funds either to launch a new project or materially prolong/improve an existing collaboration. In all cases, there should be a teacher or other institutional supervisor to oversee the project; this person should also be listed as a point of contact.
Application can be made at anytime during the academic year. Recipients will be announced annually, in May, at the National Finals of Reach For The Top. Successful applicants may be asked to participate in other Foundation activities as a condition of the award. The grant is project-specific, and should not be used towards tuition, fees, or daily maintenance.
With these two grants available on an annual basis, we hope to encourage knowledge and creativity across a broad range of interests and pursuits. We hope that this will build on the kind of general knowledge base that activates the Reach for the Top team player.
So if you or other students in your school are planning such a project, prepare your proposal over the summer and submit it to Reach For The Top.
