Guidelines and requirements for submitting a grant
request to the NSS Education Division Grants & Scholarships Committee:Grants are awarded to private individuals as well as institutions. Please contact the
Education Division Chief for questions
about whether or not your project might qualify.
Only grant requests pertinent to educational endeavors will be considered. If you have a grant request pertaining to
personal education or funding a special project, please review the NSS grants page for more appropriate grant sources.
The grant application can be completed and submitted electronically. The form is available in MS Word or as an Acrobat
.pdf file. In the MS Word version, simply download the form, click in the
gray box for each field and type your information.
The form will automatically adjust its size to fit your needs. This form can be sent via email to the the
Education Division Chief , or
printed and mailed. See the NSS Web page for current contact information. If you cannot use MS Word, you can
file in Adobe Reader and complete the form by hand or type. Electronic submissions are preferred; however, all grant
requests are evaluated on merit, not format.
Grants are awarded throughout the fiscal year; however, grant applications are due by the end of March and the end of
September for consideration in each bi-annual round. Please note that sometimes only partial awards can be made due to the
number of requests and the limits of funding.
If an award is made, the requestor is required to provide a brief article suitable for the general readership of the
NSS News when the project is completed. Photographs and other supporting documentation can accompany the article. The
article should be submitted to the committee chair for evaluation, and will then be forwarded to the NSS News editor.
Failure to complete this documentation will result in ineligibility for future awards.
