Mathematics & Science Partnership Grants Application Process Reopened
The application process for the North Carolina Mathematics and Science Partnership Grants has been reopened. North Carolina has been allotted approximately $4,496,523.85 for fiscal year 2012-2013 to support projects already funded and to begin new three-year Mathematics and Science Partnership (MSP) grants. The goal of these grants is to improve the mathematics and science knowledge of North Carolina students in high-need school districts by providing professional-development activities to their mathematics and science teachers. The funding available is targeted to improve mathematics and/or science instruction in elementary, middle, and high schools. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis, with grant awards ranging between $3000 and $7000 per teacher receiving at least 80 hours of professional development during the three-year period. Grants will be funded for one year and renewed annually depending upon satisfactory progress toward meeting established goals and continued funding from the United States Department of Education. Funds must be used to supplement, not supplant, funds that would otherwise be used for proposed activities. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) is responsible for administering this program and for determining funding recipients. All funding for this program is contingent upon continued funding from the federal government. All applicants are required to apply using the guidelines of the revised RFP dated February 24, 2012.
The deadline to apply for a grant is 5:00 p.m., April 9, 2012.
