AST Professional Development Grant

The AST values membership participation in P.D. activities and acquisition of new resources to engage students and create new learning opportunities in science classrooms. The AST has established a fund for this purpose. A grant may be given for that portion of the applicants' expenses not covered by other funding. This grant is not intended to provide teachers with personal instructional devices. The amount of the grant will be 25% of the total costs of the P.D. activity or resources to a maximum of $250.00, unless additional funding is authorized by the executive. If the fund is depleted, no further grants will be disbursed that year.

Criteria/Guidelines
Only current AST members are eligible to apply. The Professional Development activity or learning resources must be related science instruction. A member may receive only one AST grant per year. A written report concerning the activity must be submitted to the AST on completion and you may be asked to present at the following year's conference. Completed application must be received by the AST three (3) weeks prior to the activity. Members who have not received a grant for two years will be given selection preference. Disbursement of the grants is at the discretion of the P.D. Grant Selection Committee.
