One Question Grant

The purpose of the One Question Grant is to support creativity and enthusiasm for exploring the themes of the 2016-2017 One Question. Thanks to a donation from the TJ partnership we are able to provide financial support to TJ students and staff to implement new projects in the TJ community that help our students think about this question in a unique way.

The grant can be used to support classroom activities, student club initiatives, service activities, and special events (including speakers) during our 8th period sessions. Grant awards can be used to pay for almost any expense that support this year's One Question. Examples of expenses can include, but are not limited to: student research project materials, books for lessons, supplies for an out-reach project, transportation costs, food for an event, a banner for the school, etc. 

Individual student, faculty member or a group of students may request up to $250 for expenses. Any requests exceeding these amounts will be considered based on funding availability. A group of students in a club or activity should submit only one proposal. Individuals can submit only one proposal for consideration in order to give this opportunity to many students and teachers. Grant awards will be selected by a school committee based on originality of idea, project feasibility, student impact, and support of the school’s academic goals. We will try to support as many projects as possible, but some may not be funded due to budget constraints. All grant recipients must be willing to give a presentation or demonstration at this year's TJ STAR on June 6, 2017.

Deadline to submit grant proposal: Tuesday, December 15, 2016.
