How Does it Work?
Through a very simple application process, State High students and Teacher Action Teams can apply for grant funding to provide enriching experiences in their classrooms or in school based onsite activities which will help to realize and put in place ideas for improving their school environment and academic education.
In our effort to benefit as many students as possible with our limited budget, at this time the PTSO does not fund grants to individual students for expenses related to field trips. There are other funding sources available for this purpose which include the Queeny fund for Educational Oppurtunity and the Sue Sheridan Memorial fund, information can be found on the State High website under Student Services.
Who can apply? Any student that is currently attending State College Area High School OR Teacher Action Teams. No more than one grant will be awarded per student per year.
All grant recipients are expected to report on the expenditure of grant funds and
results of the supported project within 2 months of the award. Please include copies of all receipts.
Grants will be approved and awarded at the discretion of the State College High
Parent Teacher Student Organization. Preference will be given to grants that will benefit the greatest number of State High students.
If this grant is for a club, students themselves are expected to fill out this application thoroughly. Remember grammar, spelling and punctuation count.
