Kansas Association for Educational Communications and Technology Grant

At the direction of the KAECT Board, a yearly grant will be determined at the summer board meeting based upon available funds. These funds may be allocated from existing monies, contributions for this expressed purpose, or other as-yet-unidentified sources. It will be up to the discretion of the board to determine if adequate funds are available and whether they should be allotted in a lump sum or divided into smaller grants. Read on for more information about the grant and how to apply:

Announcements
The announcement of the grant and amount will take place in the fall and will be announced in the Communicator, on the KAECT listserv, the KAECT website and at selected meetings designated by the KAECT Board. Grant winner will be announced at the KAECT Membership Meeting at the annual KAECT Conference.

Grant Appications
KAECT is now taking competitive proposals for one $1500 Technology Grant. This grant is open to K-12 and Higher Education KAECT members employed within the state of Kansas. Grant application deadline: All applications should be postmarked by February 1st.

Each application should include:
