Grants of up to $1,000 to Maryland school psychology training programs and associations and LEAs to provide continuing education opportunities for school psychologists throughout the state. Priority will be given to programs that address diversity and social justice. The purpose of funding is to support projects that enhance the effectiveness of school psychologists as local service providers.

Funding Priorities:

  1. First-time applications and applicants who have not received similar awards in recent years;
  2. Applicants from remote counties lacking geographic proximity to the more typical training forums and sites;
  3. 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;
  4. Projects that reflect cross-county participation;
  5. Applicants who, having received similar awards in prior years, completed all objectives of the grant.
