SAE Grant Update
The number of SAE Career Pathway Grants to be awarded has been increased this year. For 2011, there will be 90 Career Pathways grants available in addition to the sponsored grants. Also, the dollar amount of these grants has been increased to $1,000. Application period opens Sept. 1 and closes Nov. 15. Applications may be submitted by members in grades 7-11 and are intended to give younger members a “leg-up” in getting their SAE off the ground or to improve an existing SAE. Grants are based primarily on financial need. Please encourage your members to take advantage of this great funding source by applying for a grant. Also, for your member’s best chance at receiving a grant, they should use the scoring rubric which will also be on the website. This is a very simple application so even new members should have no problem in completing it.
