The California Mathematics and Science Partnership (CaMSP) program seeks to establish Demonstration Centers for up to $250,000 to support currently funded and potential CaMSP applicants.

Eligibility
Criteria
The essential partnership is between an eligible local educational agency (LEA) and eligible departments of institutions of higher education (IHE). County offices of education, individual schools, additional LEAs, IHEs, or other organizations concerned about mathematics and science education may also participate in the partnership. Only local educational agencies (LEAs) who meet the 40 percent free and reduced lunch criteria may apply as a lead partner for a Demonstration Center or a Cohort 9 partnership.

Eligibility
Considerations
The lead partner must be a "high-need LEA." The lead partner submits the application and accepts management and fiduciary responsibility for the partnership. The term "high-need LEA" refers to one that serves a student population where at least 40 percent of the students qualify for the National School Lunch Program. Eligible departments of IHEs are mathematics, science, engineering or any combination.
