Grant Declination: Johnson Scholarship Foundation (BDPA Greater Tampa Bay)

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) and BDPA Greater Tampa Bay chapter had our grant proposal declined by Johnson Scholarship Foundation. We had sought $5,000 for the 2018 Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES) program.

Sharon Wood, program officer wrote,

Thank you for your Letter of Inquiry expressing interest in making a proposal for a grant from the Johnson Scholarship Foundation. Our LOI review committee has read this request, and, while we applaud your efforts to provide education and technology programs, regretfully, we must decline the Foundation's participation.

I regret that we are unable to extend support. I do, however, wish you every success and hope you will be able to secure the funding you need for your endeavors.

BETF is willing to work with BDPA Greater Tampa Bay and the other 45 chapters to obtain the funding that they need to successfully deliver their 2018 SITES program. Simply reach out to the BETF executive director if you have questions or wish to discuss further.
