Mini Grant Application Guidelines
The Petrova Parents' Club funds special requests twice during the school year. Grants are awarded based on the quality of the proposal, the intended benefit of the proposal, and the current financial status of the Parents' Club.
Who may apply?
Teachers, club leaders, administrators, and staff are welcome to apply for a mini-grant from the Parents' Club.
What kinds of requests are funded?
The Parents' Club will consider requests for educational events, and/or items such as, but not limited to, books, periodicals, instructional videos, computer software, and scientific or electronic equipment. The Parents' Club is interested in enriching the educational experience of as wide a cross-section of the Petrova student body as possible. Therefore, requests that benefit groups of students, such as a classroom, or a club that includes more than one grade level, will be given greater weight than requests that benefit only a few students. Similarly, requests that demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach will be given precedence. Funding may be solicited for projects that occur on an ongoing basis, or for programs that occur one time only. The Parents' Club will not fund requests for field trips unless they are educational, pre-approved by the District, and will use District transportation. The Parents' Club will not fund requests for snacks or food. Materials purchased through this grant must remain at Petrova Elementary for use by future classes and groups.
Mini-Grant funding limits
Requests of up to and including $500.00 per application should use this mini-grant application. There is a $1,000.00 per year per applicant limit. Requests for more than $500.00 should be discussed with the Parents' Club.
Applications are accepted and reviewed once in January for the 2016-2017 school year. The deadline for applications is January 20, 2017. The Committee reviews the applications at 6pm on the day of the first monthly meeting of the Parents' Club after the deadline. In 2016-17, this will be February 6, 2017. Applicants are welcome to attend this committee meeting and present additional information about their application. The Committee discusses the applications in the subsequent days, votes, and announces its decisions about a week after the committee meeting. Applicants will be informed by email of the Committee's decision.
