The Denver Council on Foreign Relations World Affairs Challenge Grants 2015

The Denver Council on Foreign Relations (DCFR) is providing three grants in an amount up to $750 each to three rural Colorado junior high/middle or high schools for the schools to use in participation at the 2015 World Affairs Challenge at Regis University. 

The DCFR will award funding on the basis of merit and need.  Merit will be judged by the quality and content of the application, and need by the proportion of students qualifying for free or reduced price lunch.

These grants may be used for any of the following: participation fees (a team of up to 8 students), travel to Regis University, lodging, or expenses related to preparation. Of each grant, $100 is to be set aside as an honorarium for the organizing teacher.

Registration deadline is December 31, 2014
