CSTA’s Chapter Grants Program supports CSTA chapters in building strong communities, providing professional development and establishing an operational foundation. Through this program, chapter leadership can apply for funds and CSTA support to expand the impact of local programs, or start new programs that support the growth of computer science teachers and enhance the value of local chapters. This program is funded through the generous support of CSTA’s partners and CSTA+ membership dues – the more members that upgrade their membership, the more grants we’ll be able to offer!

There are multiple levels of grants to meet the needs of different projects and chapters:

  • ECEP / CSTA GECKO Equity Grants (up to $1,500; http://bit.ly/GECKOgrants)
  • Major PD event (over $10,000) – Email chapters@csteachers.org
  • Mid-Level ($5,001-10,000)
  • Small ($500-5,000)
  • Mini-Grant (up to $500)
  • SWAG Grant (up to $200)
