Each year the BCAMT offers up to $8000 in grant funds to its membership. The funds must be used to further mathematics education in BC. These initiatives must meet the Goals and Objectives of the BCAMT. These funds are not meant for individual professional development.
The BCAMT values the sharing of ideas and expects that successful applicants will:
- Write a 450-word summary explaining the initiative and results and also include photo(s) suitable for publication
- If the initiative requests for $1000 or less, 100% of the grant is provided upon approval by the BCAMT executive.
- If the initiative requests for more than $1000, 75% of the funds will be provided upon approval by the BCAMT executive, the remaining funds will be released upon completion of the grant requirements (see above).
All applications must be received no later than November 30, 2020. Applicants will be informed about funding after approval by the BCAMT Executive. Successful applicants may wish to re-apply for funding each year but are not guaranteed continued support.
