The Viking Grants application cycle has come to a close for the 2018-2019 school year. Thanks to our members, the PTSA was able to award nearly $7000 in grants to teachers supporting programs in the fine arts, theater, journalism, choir and creative writing, among others.
Please check back at the start of the 2019-2020 school year for updated application procedures.
The rest of this page refers to the 2018-2019 year.
Paly parents donate money to the PTSA to support and inspire the work you do, which in turn enhances the quality of education for their students. While a large portion of PTSA funds goes to purchasing items for students – departmental supplies, PSATs, technology – Viking Grants are for you, teachers and staff! The PTSA allocates a percentage of its operating funds to help make your jobs easier and more effective, and to support creative and innovative ideas. Viking Grants (of up to $1,000 per request) are awarded to teachers and staff to enhance classroom programs and support school-wide goals. Collaboration among staff members is encouraged, and grants of larger amounts will be considered. All funds need to be spent during the school year awarded. Deadline for applications is April 8, 2019. Please note: Viking Grants are not for hardware technology.
The PTSA Grants Committee will review requests on a rolling basis throughout the year.
