Application Resources

Mini-Grant Application Requirements:
  • At least two programs from different organizations must collaborate on the mini-grant project.
  • You must have a program registered and approved in The Connectory before applying. Your collaborating partner must also be registered and approved in the Connectory. The Connectory is NGCP's newly expanded Program Directory. Learn more here.
  • Once your program is approved, clicking on the "Apply for Grant" link on the left hand navigation list will lead to a live application link. The actual application will only appear after your Connectory program is approved.
  • The applicant must choose one of her/his programs to be the lead program. You must have a program registered and approved in The Connectory before applying.
  • The lead program must be located in a collaborative state or region currently offering mini-grants.
  • Preference is given to projects that are innovative and include a collaboration between organizations that has not occurred before.
  • Mini-grant projects must last longer than one day, unless the one-day project is part of a larger event (e.g. a one-day STEM conference for middle school girls that is included within a week-long summer camp).
