Looking for a way to purchase math
and science classroom materials? Are you in need of funding to support
equipment for your great ideas? Wish you could implement some ideas
seen during last year’s conferences or professional development
training? The answer might be waiting for you through the Quality Math
and Science Grant Program.
The Quality Science & Mathematics
Grant Program (QSM) was established by R.S. 17:371-1 of the Louisiana
Legislature in the summer of 1992 for the purpose of providing grants
to mathematics and science public school teachers for the purchase of
materials and equipment. The QSM program administered by the Gordon
Cain STEM Center at LSU (http://www.cain.lsu.edu/)
has approximately $162,000 in funds to award grants to eligible
classroom teachers for the
school year. Grants of up to $750 each for approved materials and
equipment are awarded on a competitive basis to individual classroom
teachers to use in providing standards-based instruction to help meet
state accountability goals. Applicants must show that their proposals
will enhance the quality of instruction for regular education students
who are enrolled in mathematics or science classes. Proposal must be
submitted no later than
Friday, September 12, 2014.
**NOTE: Only full-time classroom teachers
assigned to teach mathematics or science in the K-12 regular education
program in public schools are eligible to submit proposals. Go to
http://www.seasystem.net/cgi-bin/qsm/ for the full
guidelines and regulations.
