BP 2011 Education Grant Program

The 2011 BP Education Grant Program, now in its 14th year, will provide selected secondary schools in Western Australia with grants of up to $3000 towards projects that enrich students’ learning experiences.

Projects should fit within the categories of energy, environment, science and technology or engineering. All applications will be judged by a panel from BP Australia and the WA Department of Education.

Successful applicants for 2010 included Albany Senior High School which researched colonisation of artificial sea grass, Mandurah Senior College which built and launched rockets, and Hampton Senior High School which designed and built a frog-friendly ecosystem.

BP spokesperson, Erin Davey, said “The grant program rewards schools and teachers that show initiative, drive and enthusiasm in their teaching.

“We particularly encourage secondary schools in regional areas to apply. Half of last year’s successful applicants were from regional areas, including Albany, Southern Cross and Kununurra. It would be wonderful to see regional schools benefit again in 2011.”

Applications for the 2011 BP Education Grant Program close on March 14. For information visit the BP website.
