Grant Programs


The PTSO's Educator mini grant program supports teachers' ideas and initiatives that directly benefit and enhance student learning inside or outside the classroom. Grants are awarded year-round, subject to availability of funds. 




The goal of the Student Grant is to provide funding to assist student clubs and extracurricular activities that: 

  • Enhance the larger community in a positive way AND/OR
  • Provide significant learning and leadership opportunities for students

(Priority will be given to applicants who satisfy both of these)

Rules for Application:

  • Applicants must be current BHS student, member of the club/organization that is applying for the grant
  • Maximum Grant Amount: $300/application
  • Student groups/activities whose primary focus is fundraising to support a particular cause should implement fundraising ideas of their own, which PTSO Student Grants may supplement
  • Student groups that must pay large fees to participate in conferences or competitions should also fundraise on their own or seek out sponsorships to help cover their costs
  • Applicants who have applied in the past should demonstrate growth and improvement from the previous year (in their efforts to build membership, fundraise, and/or provide learning and leadership opportunities)
  • Groups may apply more than once, but each one is judged separately. Acceptance for the grant in one year does not guarantee acceptance for future years
  • The grant must be used for an activity that will benefit members of the student population
  • Grant monies are disbursed as reimbursements. Students/groups who receive grants will need to provide receipts documenting approved expenditures
