DCDT Mini-Grants for State Chapters

This DCDT request for proposals is to support active DCDT state chapters in developing innovative ways to put research into practice and elicit new DCDT members. Examples of projects may be professional development modules, training tools, or materials that build the capacity of educators to put research into practice. To be considered for the mini-grant, your state chapter must be an active DCDT state chapter. DCDT will fund up to five mini-grants for a total of $15,000 through this competitive grant competition. Therefore, each active chapter may submit a proposal that does not exceed $3,000. The call for proposals will be disseminated through our DCDT e-Blast and website on July 19. The deadline for submitting proposals is August 31. Notification for five funded proposals will be September 30. To apply for the mini-grant, state chapters should complete the proposal form below and return it to your DCDT Regional Representative.
