INSSWA offers two opportunities during the school year for full members to apply for a mini-grant in the amount of $100 - $500. While mini-grant applications may be submitted anytime during the year, the deadlines for each cycle are November 1st & June 1st, with funding decisions being made shortly thereafter. Grant requests may be fully or partially funded.
The purpose of these grants is to help school social workers establish or enhance programs that provide direct services to students and/or their families. Grant recipients are expected to write a short descriptive paragraph about their program, as well as provide a curricular outline of their program to be posted on the INSSWA website (non-copyrighted information). Members are encouraged to apply if they have an existing program for which new materials are needed, or have an idea for implementation of a new program.
Grant guidelines and information may be found on the INSSWA website or by contacting our Midwest Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mini-Grant programs and materials must provide direct service to students and/or their families. INSSWA will consider proposals which include, but are not limited to:
