PACE Outreach Fund

The Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence maintains the Outreach Fund, a program funding outreach for high quality quizbowl around the country. The program is designed to support state organizations, tournament hosts, and anybody else working to recruit new teams.

Any person or organization with an outreach initiative that would be aided by financial assistance is encouraged to apply for funding. The financial assistance will take the form of grants, the size of which will depend on the predicted impact of the program.

In order to apply for a grant, send an email to our VP of Outreach with the subject line “PACE Outreach Fund – [organization or school name]”. Applications must include details about the proposed outreach, including: method of outreach, approximate length of program, number of schools expected to be reached, and approximate cost of the program. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application within two weeks.

Organizations must also either provide receipts up front or send receipts to PACE no later than 30 days after the completion of their outreach. Organizations that do not comply with this requirement will not be permitted to apply for further outreach funds.

The outreach fund is generously supported by contributions from people like you.
