Grant Opportunities through KAHPERD
KAHPERD offers two types of grant opportunities.
1. Project Incentive Grants
2. Member Grants
Each type of grant is explained below. Submission requirements and timelines are also identified.
Project Incentive Grants
Colleges and universities may apply for money through Project Incentive Grant. This is a program in which colleges and universities may apply for up to $2,000 to provide unique opportunities to improve the status of HPERD in the state of Kansas.
If a project is funded and not completed within eight months of funding, 100% of the money must be refunded to KAHPERD. If a project is funded and then cancelled, 90% of the money must be refunded to KAHPERD. A college/university may receive only one grant through Project Incentive per year.
The grant deadlines are 1 February and 1 September each year.
The grant should be submitted in an electronic format to the KAHPERD Grant Chair, Wendy Scholten.
The Grant Committee will monitor the progress of these grants. A final report of the project, along with receipts, must be submitted in writing to the KAHPERD Grant Chair no later than six months after the completion of the project.
Members may apply for grant money up to $1,000 for innovative and/or creative activity that enhances wellness within a school.
Grant application must be received by September 1.
All projects must be completed within one year from receipt of funding. If the grant is not completed in the one year, the Grants Committee may give one, six month extension or request all money and equipment previously granted be refunded to KAHPERD.
Grant winners will be required to present findings at the next KAHPERD Convention following receipt of money and/or submit a journal article to the journal editor and grant chair.
The Grant Committee will monitor the progress of these grants and see to it that appropriate documentation is submitted to the KAHPERD Past-President and the Treasurer.
