What is the PSO Grant Program?

The PSO Grant Program is a supplemental program funded entirely by OCSA's PSO own discretionary funds and provides individual awardees who apply for funds the ability to make specific purchases, or to help fund existing or new programs in the classroom.

During the past 6 years, the PSO awarded over $210,000 in grant funds to OCSA Academic and Conservatory Faculty or Staff members.  The grants funded purchases and projects ranging from extra books for the classroom to music for conservatory libraries, from sports equipment and musical instruments to eraser board and electronic whiteboards.  Grant awards can range from $100 to $1000, and occasionally several thousand dollars.
