Mu Alpha Theta has Chapter Grants available! Our desire is to help support chapters so they can
provide interesting mathematical experiences for their members, others at their school, and their local
community.

The Governing Council of Mu Alpha Theta has voted to set aside $25,000 for these Chapter Grants.
A grant will provide up to $1000 to reimburse expenses. No chapter will be granted more than $1000 over time, but a
chapter may apply more than once, if they have not reached their
$1000 limit. Grants will be competitive and not all grant requests may be funded. We can provide some funds to pay invoices or
will reimburse receipts after the event. Travel can only be paid after it has occured.

Grant funds may be used to support events that stimulate an interest in mathematics. Some ideas are listed below or come up
with your own ideas.

**Visiting Lecturer Program:** Invite a Mathematician or scientist to make a presentation to your chapter. Funds may be used
to reimburse travel expenses or to provide an honorarium.

**One Day Road Trip:** Plan a visit to a University, College, or an Industrial organization that includes a research and development unit.
What about a visit to a government laboratory in the area of your Mu Alpha Theta Chapter? The agenda must have a “mathematics component": a
presentation involving science or engineering research, development, or careers involving mathematics. Maybe include a tour of facilities used for
the collection of data. Possible talks on site could include something about the computational environments used, simulations,
or visualization of output for systems governed by mathematical models. National Labs include LLNL, PNNL, JPL, Sandia,
Los Alamos, ORNL, NASA, Argonne, Brookhaven, Ames, Idaho, Savannah River, Thomas Jefferson, and Lawrence Berkeley. Or visit
an Industrial site such as: SAIC, ANSER, Booz Allen and Hamilton, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Harris, General Motors, or Ford.
Funds may be used for transportation, substitute costs, and meals.

**Applied Mathematics Day:** Organize an applied mathematics day for your Mu Alpha Theta chapter or for schools in your region or state.
Invite Industrial research and development personnel to talk about applied mathematics / computational science careers and to give a high
school level overview of a project having a mathematics component. Also, invite University researchers to talk about mathematical research
projects, again at the high school level. Look at topics of the Moody Mega Math Challenge contest or the Actuarial Foundation project.
Funds may be used for travel reimbursements for participants, speakers, for meals or organizational expenses.

**Teacher and Sponsor Workshop:** Organize a local or regional workshop for Mu Alpha Theta Sponsors and other interested teachers on
mathematical modeling and how to incorporate activities into your classroom. Presenters would share ideas and classroom acitivities.
They would come from your local high schools, nearby Two-Year colleges, or universities. Possibly some industry personnel that might
have expertise in developing and describing mathematical models could be invited as speakers. The presentation and discussion would focus on
insight, best techniques, and success stories in building mathematical modeling activities for high school projects. Funding could be provided for travel expenses for workshop participants, meals, or organizational
expenses. The National Office might be able to provide suggestions for speakers.

**Host a Math Competition:** This could be for your school, other high schools, middle schools, or elementary schools in your area. Funds could be used
to purchase awards, pay for testing, meals, etc. If this is your first year to host an event, we may provide support,
should you have expenses not covered by other sources.

**Host a Math Fun Night or Pi Day Activities:** Again for your school, other high schools, middle schools, or elementary schools in your area. Funds could be used
to purchase materials, pay for custodial help, pay for meals, etc. We may provide support,
should you have expenses not covered by other sources.

Grant money is not specifically intended to send students to State, Regional, or National math competitions, but such expenses
will be considered. Funding will NOT be granted for Mu Alpha Theta competitions or State Mu Alpha Theta sponsored competitions.
