Awarding of Funds
A total of $3,000 in grants will be awarded this school year.
After two consecutive years of receiving a teacher grant, a successful program may be considered a mature grant and fall under the Mature Grant budget item with funds allocated accordingly. Mature grants are considered Bonny Slope traditions and do not need to be re-approved annually, but will be re-considered each Spring when the budget is set.
Grants awarded must be implemented during the school year they were approved.
Application forms are available on the BSCO website and may be submitted any time. The BSCO encourages early submission to ensure funds are available.
Personal Professional Development Grants
