Special Project Grant

Special Project Grants fund collaborative projects in the Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District. Each year the SFPE Board considers our budget and sets aside funding for creative and innovative student orientated programs that do not fall within our regular grant cycle and that need financial support. Funding is highly competitive and limited to projects that directly impact students in the Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District.

  • Funding requests up to $500
  • Applications reviewed on monthly basis
  • Please allow at least one month for your application to be reviewed
  • Ask us about ways to encourage family/friends to support your fundraising efforts!
Examples of Special Projects
  • State level academic, music, art & drama competitions
  • National level academic, music, art & drama competitions
  • High impact local school projects not falling within SFPE’s regular grant cycle
