National Convention Grants
Mu Alpha Theta will award a limited number of $4,000 convention grants to the 2017 Buffalo National Convention. Each grant will cover free registration for a minimum three members and a sponsor. Members who attend must not have graduated before the convention. The remaining funds may be used for additional student registration costs or to reimburse travel expenses. If a school is awarded a convention grant, additional participants from that school will only be charged the early rate of $550, even if the award is made after April 1. To be eligible for a grant, a chapter cannot have previously attended a national convention. The intent of the grant is to allow the teacher and students to experience our national convention for the first time. Only schools who have a math sponsor and three eligible students should complete the application.
To apply for this grant, complete the application and submit it by April 1 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to:

Schools selected will be contacted before the end of April by email. The only responsibility of the winners is to fill out a survey after the convention regarding their experiences. Applying schools should be ready to submit enrollment information should they be selected. Winners of the grants are encouraged to bring more than three students. Additional attendees will be granted the early bird registration rate, as long as full payment for them is received by the May 15 deadline.
