  • Each point on the grant application must be addressed, and all questions must be answered. If questions are ignored or not answered clearly and completely, the Trust may need to postpone consideration until clarification is obtained.
     
  • Grant requests submitted retroactively will not be considered.
     
  • In awarding available funds, the Trust will give preference to the following:
    • Projects that will enrich the curriculum (as opposed to providing core curriculum, which is traditionally funded by state and local resources).
    • Projects with potential long-term impact.
    • Projects that will benefit a large number of students.
    • Inter-classroom, inter-discipline, and multi-teacher projects.
       
  • After consideration, an HST director will advise the applicant of the status of the request.
