Earn up to $200 for your Science and Math Programs:
Support may be on the way for your classroom budget. As an AIAA Educator Associate, ( Free membership ) you�re invited to apply for a Classroom Grant from the AIAA Foundation .
Here�s how it works. Are you a K-12 teacher who develops or applies science, mathematics, and technology in your curriculum? If the answer is �yes,� you may qualify for a grant of up to $200 per individual request to supplement your learning program. Each school is limited to up to $1,000 per calendar year.

Grants will be considered on a quarterly basis in January, March, June, and September.
Grants must be received one month prior to be considered for the upcoming cycle.
For example, grant proposals to be evaluated in January must be received by
AIAA by 30 November.

So Many Activities You Can Support: Use your grant for classroom demonstration kits and science supplies, math and science software, supplies for making flying objects (what kid can resist the chance to build and launch a rocket?)and other materials to help you make science, mathematics, and technology come alive in your classroom."
