SCCTM Teacher Grant Application 2023

The South Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics (SCCTM) will provide grant funds of up to forty-five hundred dollars ($4,500.00) in any given year (given appropriate budget funding) to support SCCTM members desiring to implement projects in mathematics-related areas. No individual grant will exceed $1,500.00.

Each grant applicant must agree to the following to receive the funds:
1. Be a member of SCCTM and be employed in South Carolina.
2. Obtain approval and signature of your supervisor and, except for higher ed. applicants, your superintendent.
3. Complete the online SCCTM Grant Application.
4. Conduct the project and submit results in an End-of-Project Report by June 30.
5. Agree to present the results of your project at the SCCTM Annual Conference, and/or write an article describing your project for The MathMate within one year of completion.

If any of the above criteria are not met, the applicant must repay the grant award to SCCTM.

Grant applications may be made for almost any mathematics-related purpose. Eligible expenses may include, but are not limited to, such items as follows: developing training materials, purchasing equipment, paying for substitute teachers for release time, writing curriculum or lesson plans, paying for project-related printing or postage, providing training for appropriate personnel, and developing or producing a product. No more than 20% of the grant amount may be budgeted for unreimbursed expenses (registration, hotel, travel, meals, sub pay) to attend the SCCTM conference to conduct a session about your project.

Grant awards to SCCTM members will be based on the recommendation of the SCCTM Grants Committee and upon the availability of funds. The SCCTM Executive Board will annually determine the total amount of grant monies available for the year. Announcement of the grant recipients will be made on or near the date of June 15.

To apply, the online form must be completed by April 15.
