Grants, Contests, Etc


Carter, Kim, Technology & Learning


Looking for funds to make an innovative technology project possible? Seeking recognition for outstanding teachers or students in your district? Here's the latest scoop on some great opportunities.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's annual Family Art and Writing Contest is open to students in grades 7-12 who create an original work, either written or visual. The 2000 contest asks participants to address the question: "How did Jewish displaced persons rebuild their lives after the Holocaust?" Both the writing and art categories have two entry divisions: Grades 7-9 and Grades 10-12. First prize for Division I and Division II in both the writing and the art contests is an expense-paid trip for one student and one parent/ guardian to the Museum, a selection of books, a gift certificate to the Museum Shop, and a certificate of achievement. The deadline for entries is May 3. For information, visit the USHMM Web site at www.ush mm.org/a&wcontest/index.htm or call 202-488-2661.

The BRICK Award for Community Leadership honors up to 10 outstanding community leaders under the age of 30 who are taking action to measurably strengthen their local communities. One national grand prize winner will receive a grant of $100,000. Up to nine other winners will each receive a grant of $10,000. The deadline for applications is May 10. For information, visit www.dosomething.org, send e-mail to brick@dosomething. org, or write to The Do Something BRICK Award, 423 W. 55th St., 8th Fl., New York, NY 10019.

The National Endowment for the Humanities continues its Fellowships and Stipends grants to support full-time independent research and writing in the humanities. The deadline is May 1 for fall 2000; October 1 for summer 2001. For information, e-mail research@neh.gov, or call 202-606-8467 (Fellowships) or 202-606-8551 (Summer Stipends).

NEH has also announced its new Extending the Reach grant programs, designed to spread the support of NEH to selected constituencies and to strengthen the humanities at Historically Black, Hispanic-Serving, and Tribal Colleges and Universities. Special focus is being given to 15 states and territories that have been underrepresented in NEH work.
