ADE Grant and Resource Opportunities

  • The Arkansas Department of Education is pleased to offer 2018-2019 equipment and materials grants for Advanced Placement courses approved by the College Board. A grant may be requested for any College Board-approved Advanced Placement course being taught at a high school that has not recently received a grant for the course.  Since funds are limited, priority will be given to courses in the four core areas of math, science, social studies, and English; and for new AP courses which have not been offered before at the school. Grant awards will be for a maximum of $1,000 each. For more information and to apply, please visit
