Request for Proposals: State Chapter Support Grants


AACTE is pleased to offer the State Chapter Support Grant Program for the 2018-2019 academic year, directing member dues toward supporting the development of AACTE state chapter initiatives and relationships. Applications for the grants are now being accepted through AACTE’s online submission site.

For the current funding cycle, the AACTE Board of Directors has allocated a total of $50,000 for the grant program, of which $40,000 is for “Chapter Activities” and $10,000 is for “Chapter Development.”

A state chapter or consortium of chapters may apply for up to $10,000 to support initiatives related to one or more of the following priorities for Chapter Activities:

  • Policy/Advocacy
  • Program Quality Issues
  • Partnership and Communication

Alternatively, a chapter may apply for up to $5,000 for activities related to one of the priorities for Chapter Development:

  • Chapter Development/Capacity
  • Scholarships

All applicants must have completed the 2018 state chapter annual report prior to submitting their grant application, and past grantees may reapply only every other year. One application will be allowed per state, or consortium of states, and must be submitted by a member of the chapter leadership who is also from an AACTE member institution.

The deadline for all applications is Friday, July 27, 5:00 p.m. EDT. Applicants will be notified of awards by Friday, September 7.
