The mission of the New Jersey Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance is to support quality program development in health, physical education, recreation, and dance in the state's schools, colleges, and universities.
To that end, NJAHPERD mini-grants provide financial assistance of up to $1,000 for new program development or to expand an existing program. Grants may be used for the purchase of equipment, software, or other materials that facilitate student learning in health, physical education, recreation, or dance. Grants may not be used for salary, honoraria, food, travel, accommodations, or convention registrations.
To be eligible, applicants must be a current member of NJAHPERD and agree to submit an article to the FYI (the organization's newsletter) or present a session at a conference or convention related to the grant proposal.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the NJAHPERD website.
