MONTANA SPACE GRANT CONSORTIUM
EDUCATION ENHANCEMENT GRANTS

Education Enhancement Grants are awarded competitively within the state through internal review of proposals. Emphasis is on "product" or "value added"; we will not fund "improvements" which require continuing Consortium funding to maintain their existence. Awards are for one year, but may be renewed if further development and goals are proposed.
