Chapter Project Grant

Every year chapters embark on various projects in support of our Society’s mission: encouraging interest in literature and the English language in surrounding communities; promoting all aspects of the discipline of English, including literature, language, and writing; and fostering literacy. Did you know that your chapter could be eligible to receive funding from Sigma Tau Delta to support you in your ventures? Every year Sigma Tau Delta awards a limited number of Chapter Project Grants, for no more than $500 each, to support local chapter activities.

Sigma Tau Delta Project Grants

Sigma Tau Delta’s Project Grants are designed to encourage local chapters to be innovative in developing projects that further the goals of the Society. The Society will award a limited number of grants, for no more than $500 each, to support local chapter activities. Funds may be requested for separate projects or for parts of larger projects, and chapters should explore ways to use Project Grants in combination with funds secured from other sources. Funds may be requested for ongoing projects, but there is no guarantee that projects funded during one grant period will receive funding in future grant periods.

Applications must be complete and received by November 5. No late submissions will be accepted. Award winners will be notified by November 30, with one-half of the awarded funds available immediately; the other half when a final project report is filed.
