Competition grants of up to $500 per active chapter are available to help pay entrance fees or expenses associated with a math competition in which the chapter members wish to compete. No chapter will be awarded more than $500. There is no deadline for the application. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis until our budget for these grants is depleted for the fiscal year. Travel can only be paid after it has occurred. Funds may not be used for Mu Alpha Theta’s National Convention. For support for that competition, see Convention Grants.

Please apply before incurring expenses to determine whether there are still funds available for the calendar year. Once a grant is approved, receipts or invoices for expenses should be sent to Mu Alpha Theta no later than one month after the date of the competition. Funding will be adjusted to cover actual expenses. It’s better to overestimate your funding needs because funds will not be available to cover excess expenses over the original approved grant amount. As a condition of this grant, grantees must submit a "grant reporting form" (form provided by Mu Alpha Theta to grantees) within 30 days of the conclusion of the event or the grantee will be responsible for reimbursing the grant funds back to Mu Alpha Theta.

A chapter may use grant funds: 
• for travel expenses to a math contest
• to help defray costs for Mu Alpha Theta members to participate in a math competition
• to pay entrance fees or per student costs to compete
