2018 – 2019 ACCELerator Grants Program

The NDIA Gulf Coast Chapter (NDIA GCC) is pleased to announce the continuation of the ACCELerator Grants Program. The focus of this program is to foster enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and math in our local school children. The program seeks to accomplish this by offering grants up to $1000 to local school teachers and tax- exempt/non-profit organizations who successfully propose projects or programs which demonstrate creativity and innovation in teaching and encouraging an interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

ACCEL grant applications will be accepted by email until close-of-business (4:30 p.m. CDT) on Wednesday, 17 October 2018. A NDIA Gulf Coast Chapter committee will meet to select the most deserving projects and the recipients will be notified during the last week of October. The awardees will be notified and invited to participate in a ACCEL Recognition Social at the Air Armament Museum during the annual NDIA Symposium on Thursday evening, 8 November 2018, with planned financial disbursement in the awardee’s schools in mid-November 2018. The number of grants will be dependent on funding. NDIA GCC reserves the right to cancel this program at any time. Grants made prior to cancellation will not be affected by cancellation.

Application Period ends 17 October 2018.
