Helpful Hints

Recipients must: 

  • Agree to spend the grant monies as detailed in their Grant Proposal
  • Agree to provide PSE details of how grant money was spent
  • Agree to create a Project Report describing the success of the project and recommendations for improvement, if applicable
  • Agree to attend a Grant Symposium to demonstrate project*
  • Agree to provide necessary guidance to ensure the project is completed if personally unable to finish (e.g. transfer, new job, retirement, etc.)

*In December, following the school year in which the grant was awarded, the grant recipient is required to provide a display at the annual PSE Symposium that gives other teachers and those providing funding for the grants an opportunity to see what was accomplished. The display and brief presentation should generally show the hands-on science that was done by the students.
