Science Teachers Invited to Submit Proposals for Toyota TAPESTRY Grant Program
Deadline: January 19, 2005

Over the past fourteen years, the Toyota TAPESTRY grant program, sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. and administered by the National Science Teachers Association (<a href=""></a>), has awarded 552 grants totaling more than $5 million to teachers in the United States and U.S. territories. This year, fifty grants of up to $10,000 each and a minimum of twenty "mini-grants" of $2,500 each are available to K-12 teachers of science.

All middle and high school science teachers and elementary teachers who teach some science in the classroom are eligible to apply. "Science teacher" is defined as anyone who spends at least 50 percent of his/her classroom time teaching science or who teaches a minimum of two science classes per day. Elementary teachers who teach science in a self-contained classroom setting or as teaching specialists are also eligible.

Proposals must describe a project and its potential impact on students and include a budget of up to $10,000 (up to $2,500 for mini-grants). Grants will be awarded in three categories: Environmental Science Education, Physical Science Applications, and Literacy and Science Education.

See the NSTA Web site for complete program guidelines, application materials, and online Tip Sheet.
