$500 to $1000 for inter-school math competitions

mathematics projectsHey Mathy Matherton’s and all other Funds Fans!  This fund opened today 🙂

The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) supports activities that promote the learning of mathematics among Canadian youth. In addition to hosting its own math competitions, the CMS offers math competition grants for activities at the elementary and secondary school levels.

The Math Competition Grants are open to contests of different kinds at the school level. This includes:

  • Traditional: students solve problems in a timed written exam
  • Projects: Teams competing to solve a strategic problem over a longer period of time
  • Posters: Preparation of a mathematical solution or discussion for display purposes

Preference will be given to:

  • Competitions which embrace a number of regional schools (city, county or province-wide)
  • New ventures or those which are aiming to expand their reach
  • Competitions which have matching sources of funding or which are aiming to become self-sufficient

Typical grants will be between $500 and $1000. Grants may not be used for salaries but are designed for costs associated with supplies, travel costs, reproduction costs, prizes, publicity, and related expenses.  Deadline: November 15, 2014
