Chapter Initiative Grants



Grant Proposals for FY14 are contingent

on the success of the Educational Foundation's

Fund Drive this year.



The AFCEA Educational Foundation Chapter Initiatives Grant Program was inaugurated in FY97 with funding provided for five Chapter proposals. In FY09, eleven proposals were received  for consideration including one from an international chapter. The proposals ranged from establishing a Science Fair for projects from military high schools, sponsoring 3-day "Rocket Days" for 4th graders, funding 10 new Science Olympian teams for middle and high schools preparing for the 2010 State tournament, and funding Robotics programs for 5th - 12th graders.  The Board of Directors approved $45,000 to fund these projects, with an additional $51,800 in matching funds provided by the Chapters for a total impact of $96,800 in Chapter Initiatives in 2010.

The success of the Science Teaching Tools Awards program has encouraged the Foundation to solicit those educational projects which deserve support and which may be expanded to Association-wide programs. These Initiative Grants are intended to fund projects planned in addition to existing chapter educational or scholarship programs.

Factors used in judging the comparative worth of the proposals are:

  • Impact
  • Enduring quality
  • Target audience(s)
  • Chapter participation (financial and personnel)
  • Relationship to AFCEA's field of endeavor

The Board of Directors encourages Chapters to include a plan for matching the funds provided by the Foundation for these Initiatives projects.

Proposal submission deadline is December 1.  Please provide in any convenient format an outline of the project, including background information according to the comparative factors listed above. Be sure to indicate the dollar amount requested as well as Chapter funds contributed.

Proposals are considered at the Educational Foundation's Board of Director's meeting held in February each year.
