Science Grants

2020 – 2021 Science Grant Applications

Applications for the 2020 - 201 SPE Evangeline Section Science Grants are being accepted now through 
Friday, November 13, 2020.

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.

From the Petroleum Industry projects received, 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.
