Valentine’s Ball Frequently Asked Questions – 2013

The 2013 AFCEA NOVA Valentine’s Ball is just around the corner – so here are our Frequently Asked Questions.

Science Teaching Tools Program

The Science Teaching Tools Program is a joint effort between AFCEA NOVA and the AFCEA International Educational Foundation. It enhances the abilities of teachers in local K-12 schools to teach and enhance their science curriculum.

Each year, awards go to elementary, middle or high school teachers to purchase supplies and/or equipment to augment their science and information technology activities in the classroom.

The application for the Science Teaching Tools Program is open once a year in the fall. For more information, please email

One-time Grant Request Process

Due to limited funding availability, AFCEA NOVA is unable to award Spring 2014 Education Grants. All Grant requests received will be held for consideration during the Fall 2014 Grants Process.

AFCEA NOVA typically accepts grant requests twice a year. The Educational Grant Committee applies a formal process to evaluate these requests and make awards.  Funding availability is based on the chapter’s budget and actual financial performance.  Organizations can apply for a one-time grant one time per year.

To apply for a one-time grant, please fill out the online grant application.

The schedule is as follows:
