BP Challenge Grant

The BP Challenge Grant is offered through a partnership with BP.  The BP Challenge Grant allows for grant recipients to receive a grant to assist with the cost of the mission or program, further instructions and details can be found on the application.  We have not yet received the grant renewal and have not yet opened the grant application.  No applications for the BP Challenge Grant will be accepted at this time.  Please check back weekly for updates regarding the BP Challenge Grant or sign up for the newsletter.  Once the grant is renewed, the application and instructions for applying will be found here.  We strongly recommend that you schedule your mission or program early as spaces fill up quick.

We also recommend that you explore the following grant opportunities for your classroom.  Prior to applying for any grant, we recommend to discuss the opportunity with your district finance office.
