Arkansas Department of Education is pleased to offer 2018-2019 equipment and
materials grants for Advanced Placement courses approved by the College Board. A grant may be
requested for any College Board-approved Advanced Placement course being taught
at a high school that has not recently received a grant for the course. Since funds are limited, priority will be given to courses
in the four core areas of math, science, social studies, and English; and for new AP
courses which have not been offered before at the school. Grant awards will be for a maximum of $1,000
each. For the purpose of this funding opportunity, “materials” are defined as
instructional items (books, manipulatives, etc.) and “equipment” as any
necessary device (graphing calculators, Ipads, etc.), directly related to the
curriculum of College Board Advanced Placement course(s) offered in Arkansas
public schools. Districts are encouraged to spend AP Incentive money received
for scores of 3 or higher to provide materials and equipment for AP courses
before requesting grant money.
application must be submitted to the Arkansas Department of Education on or
before October 1, 2018, and can be accessed at the following link:
applicants will be notified by October 15th about the grant awards. In
order to receive the reimbursement grants, documentation of proof of payment
(paid invoices) must be submitted to the ADE Office of Gifted & Talented
and AP by December 14, 2018.
