How It Works

Grants are awarded once a year, after the beginning of the school year. The application will appear here when grants are open. The winners are announced in this space.

The short application includes a description of the innovative project, the benefits(s) for the students, and how success will be measured. Please submit your application using the form below during the application period from June to August.

A one page final report is required at the end of the project along with your receipts.

Awardees can expect a required project observation by one of the committee members.

Project awards will range from $50.00 to $500.00.

Innovative Grants for Teaching are designed to encourage, empower, and support teachers in their efforts to:

  1. Enhance learning opportunities for their students.
  2. Build upon their innovative approaches in meeting specific learning needs of their students.
  3. Build upon the dedication to their students and teaching.
  4. Acknowledge the level of caring teachers have for their students and the care they provide.
  5. Expand their professionalism.
