  • Children's Services Grant

The Children’s Services Committee has allocated funds for the purpose of supporting child-related service efforts. Grants will be awarded to a WSPA school psychologist member to support a specific activity, school-wide initiative, training opportunity, or extracurricular endeavor for the purpose of providing children’s services. This year, the Children’s Services Committee has one grant for $500. Projects must be implemented during the current school year.

Past grants have been awarded to fund youth mentor programs, collaborative efforts between staff and students, and violence prevention programs, among others.

Recipients of this year’s funding will be chosen based on:

1. Detailed description of the project (step by step process, list required staff and time commitment)
2. Demonstrated need for project (data-driven)
3. Anticipated outcome and benefit to children (provide evidence base for anticipated effectiveness)
4. Specific timeline
5. Detailed budget/funding rationale

Interested individuals need to submit a typed proposal of 350-500 words addressing the five points described. The timeline and budget for the project should be clearly outlined. Funds will be awarded in December 2016.
