Each year the Alaska Council for Exceptional Children presents a Mini Grant Award at the Alaska State Special Education Conference (ASSEC), which occurs in February. This year, the award is for $200.00. The application deadline for this year’s award is January 31, 2021. As this year’s conference is virtual, the awardee does not need to be present at the conference. If you have an instructional practice that you would like to implement but need funds in order to do so, consider applying for the Mini Grant by providing needed information on an emailed application. Note that as the theme for this year’s Conference is, “A Journey to Inclusion,” we are particularly interested in how your proposed project will impact and promote inclusion.
A Mini Grant application is emailed annually to current members. The application is also available on the Alaska CEC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AlaskaCEC/). Members are encouraged to complete the application and return it to the designated email address. Representatives from the board of directors evaluate each application on the basis of thoroughness, detail, need, and likely impact of the submitted project applications. Applicants are then notified of the results by email.
