Are you looking for a way $$$$$ to expand or fund an innovative program at your school? The Outreach Grants from the WEMTA PET (Permanent Endowment Trust) are a great opportunity for you. These are the three factors to consider when creating your application:

1. Does your project provide a direct and recognizable benefit to WEMTA members?
2. Does your project support innovation in school library media or instructional technology programs?
3. Is your project a community-based one that promotes professional partnerships?

Examples of previous outreach grants include a Learning4Life professional development program, a book study on Invent to Learn along with accompanying makerspace technology, and the integrations of iPads into a literacy program for students in transitional housing.

WEMTA membership is required for applicants of grants!
