Educational Scholarship Shark Tank

Four to five finalists will be selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who will then distribute $10,000 among the project(s). The best proposal might get it all, or it might be divided among projects!

This is a great opportunity to receive feedback from recognized educational experts, understand the kinds of things expert review panels consider, and get funding for a project.

How Shark Tank Works:
Selected proposal presenters, will have five minutes to make a presentation, with or without PowerPoint slides, describing:

  • Why is this important?
  • What do you plan to do?
  • How will you demonstrate that it works?

After each presenter has answered pointed questions and worked with the sharks, a final proposal or proposals will emerge and be awarded the grant(s).

4:50 - 5:00 p.m.
