The LCEF in conjunction with United Bank and Trust have created the Teacher Mini-Grant program to provide funds to teachers to develop and implement instructional projects that motivate and challenge students to learn. Proposals should be unique classroom projects that enliven and enrich the curriculum. The maximum funding request is $500.
Applications are reviewed one time annually and are generally due in early spring. The 2013 applications are due on March 1, 2013.
Please complete the LCEF Teacher Mini-Grant application and return it to the LCEF office prior to the deadline. The application is available here: 2013 Mini Grant Application.
Teacher mini-grant applications will be assessed on the quality of the project and the quality of the application. Please be sure to thoroughly and concisely address all of the questions on the mini-grant application.
