Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 to New York teachers in private, parochial, and public secondary schools in Orange, Ulster, and Dutchess Counties to purchase scientific laboratory equipment. Funding is intended to be used for projects meant to prepare middle- and high-school students for college science studies, and to inspire students to pursue careers in science.

Funding priority will be given to requests that are well-written, for equipment that is durable and will serve a large number of students.  Requests that include information relative to how the lessons using the equipment will positively impact students, spur their interest in science-related careers, and provide a strong educational foundation for college level curriculum will receive special consideration. Requests that note equipment-sharing across schools within the same district are also encouraged.  

The purpose of these grants is to expand students' learning opportunities in the sciences through the acquisition of classroom and laboratory science equipment. This equipment could include microscopes, temperature probes, light probes, computer-related equipment and software, and other laboratory tools.
