Science Grants

2018 - 2019 Science Grant Applications

Applications for the 2018 - 2019 SPE Evangeline Section Science Grants are being accepted now through October 31, 2018.

The SPE Board Members of the Evangeline Section commend you for the hard work and dedication you
portray in developing young scholars. A large part of our vision with the science grants is to promote
the enhancement of students’ learning experiences through hands-on, real-life projects that are
technically driven. The SPE Board grants awards to schools in Lafayette and surrounding parishes. Only
applications with projects reflecting the positive aspects of our Petroleum Industry will be reviewed
and awarded. A project that affects a larger number of students will score higher points this year.
The committee will determine award recipients and amounts based on a few criteria: level of
industry/technical application, project scale and effort applied to application. Due to increased
participation over the past few years and this year’s funds that are available, awards will range from
$200.00 to $500.00. Limit one application per teacher.
