Schools have been particularily challenged during the last 2 years. We would like to encourage school teachers in the Greater Mid-South (Memphis, TN, USA) with assistance to help cover the cost of using stamps in their school curriculum.
MSCS offers two, $150.00, Grant Application awards, with the opportunity to re-apply for a second semester. Please visit the Grant Page for additional information.
The challenge is engaging the younger generations and we congratulate a fellow club member for her innovation using stamps as a teaching aid.
Apply now for Fall, 2021!!!
MSCS was hoping to return to live meetings in August; Site occupancy permits have pushed that date to 02 Sept, 2021. For further information, please see the Contact Us Page. We will also update via email. Please say yes to accept cookies and join our mailing list.
