A weighted cumulative GPA of 3.5 is required to apply and students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to renew each year.

Science Fairs

Science fairs are a great way to inspire young minds and future scientists. We support only district-wide science fairs with categories of energy or engineering. If your district would like to be considered for a science fair grant, send the appropriate paperwork to

Due to the number of schools in our service area, we cannot provide grants or support to individual schools for their science fair activities.
