Description:The American Sign Language (ASL) Honor Society provides minigrants to high school and postsecondary teachers for projects that enhance study of ASL. Only educators in current member schools and institutions with ASL Honor Society chapters are eligible to apply, and grants are paid directly to the school. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Depending on the number of applications, ASL Honor Society may fund a single project or support multiple projects. Grant funds must be used for expenses such as guest speaker fees, ASL Festival/Deaf Awareness Week costs, school-wide ASL entertainment or speaker; and study-related supplies and equipment.

Applicants must specify whether the grant is needed for an event or materials and should be very specific in explaining how the amount requested would be used. Priority is given to grant requests for projects that raise or enhance ASL awareness, and applicants should provide concrete examples, including benefits to students enrolled in an ASL program as well as nonprogram students and community members. Applications must be submitted by postal mail.
