Once again, the Michigan State Budget includes grants for Science Olympiad teams! The official instructions for applying will be published on or about October 1, 2016. However, this is what we already know:
– Your School District must apply on behalf of your team; figure out who that is
– If you are a new Secondary team you may receive as much as $1600; existing teams, $800
– Money available to Elementary teams is half as much
– Your school district must pay for 25% of the support for your team (the grant can cover up to 75%)
– We will publish advice on how to demonstrate district support, in case that is a challenge
Be sure to thank your legislator for the support!
