Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $800 to Maryland local school psychology associations, local education agencies, school psychology training programs and consortiums for school psychologist professional development opportunities. Funding is intended to support projects that enhance the effectiveness of school psychologists as local service providers. The bulk of these funds must be used for expenses incurred for speakers, facilities, and/or administrative costs.

Priority will be given to:

-First-time applications and applicants who have not received similar awards in recent years;
-Applicants from remote counties lacking geographic proximity to the more typical training forums and sites;
-Groups that demonstrate support of MSPA activities by indicators such as a high percentage (50% or more) of certified school psychologists as active MSPA members;
-Projects that reflect cross-county participation;
-Applicants who, having received similar awards in prior years, completed all objectives of the grant.
