Student Participation Grant

This grant is designed to assist undergrad university students who have helped plan and execute a Jump or Hoops for Heart event during their university experience or during their student teaching in a school setting. A voucher for $250.00 will be issued to the selected students for equipment from Palos Sports to be used after the student has become employed at a K-12 school after graduation.

Application Process:

  1. Each applicant will obtain a letter from either their university professor or co-operating teacher verifying that they helped to plan and execute a Jump or Hoops for Heart event.
  2. Submit a completed application form and the verification letter send both items to the chair of the IAHPERD JRFH state committee. The committee will review the applications and notify the grant winners. Four grants will be awarded per school year.

For any questions please contact the JRFH State Committee or the IAHPERD office.
