Bethesda-Chevy Chase PTSA  - Student Community Grant Guidelines


Overview and Purpose


B-CC PTSA Student Community Grants are offered to students for student-centered projects that enhance a sense of connectedness, community and inclusiveness and directly impact a large portion of the student population. The grant committee encourages proposals up to $500.    


Examples of activities that meet the PSTA’s program goals for this initiative are:


  • Special events or one time projects that enrich campus life, such as a guest speaker or decorations

  • Permanent projects that will enhance a specific space, such as the Mosaic Wall

  • Supplies for a student initiative that is published for the school community, such as making a film.


Examples of activities that do not meet PSTA’s program goals are:


  • Student travel to a conference, training or extra-curricular event

  • Individual scholarships

  • Clubs, sports teams, or other projects/programs that are funded elsewhere


Application Process.  It’s easy!

Proposed projects will be scored and evaluated based on the following criteria:


  1. Project Description and Design: How well are the project and activities described?

  2. Goals of the Project:  Are the project goals clearly defined?

  3. Project Timeline: Is the timeline realistic and feasible?

  4. Budget: Is the budget complete and realistic?
