Grant Declination: GenCorp Foundation (National BDPA)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) worked with National BDPA past vice president Paulette Johnson-Davis to submit a $36,000 grant proposal to the GenCorp Foundation. Recently we learned that our grant proposal has been declined for funding. The GenCorp Foundation executive director wrote:

Dear Mr. Hicks,

Thank you for your funding request of December 6, 2011 seeking support of your Student Information Technology & Scholarship (SITES) program.

The GenCorp Foundation receives many more requests than it can fund. After review of your proposal, I regret that the GenCorp Foundation is not able to fund your request.

I wish you continued success in encouraging young people to pursue careers in science and technology.

Juanita Garcia, executive director
GenCorp Foundation

We appreciate GenCorp Foundation for considering our request. BETF will turn its attention to other funding sources that may be more open to supporting our SITES program on a national, regional or local level.
