Time is running out to apply for chapter grants

Time is running out to apply for a chapter grantNeed some cash for an event or program? Region 7’s chapters have until Dec. 5 to apply for the latest round of chapter grants, awarded by the national office.

The grants help fund unique, diverse and creative programming, and can total up to $500. Past grants have gone to programs on copy editing, diversity, ethics, the First Amendment, freelancing, and reporting techniques, among others.

Programs designed for the spring regional conference, however, are exempt.

All fully chartered chapters that have filed an annual report for 2011-12 are eligible, as well as new and reactivated chapters that are up to date on their paperwork with the national office.

Keep in mind though, grants are awarded only after chapters submit summary reports about their program, including receipts. Those reports and receipts are due within 15 days following the program.

So, apply now online. The deadline is midnight Eastern time on the due date.
