The purpose of the Grants 4 Teachers program is to fund creative ideas that would otherwise be impossible due to school system funding constraints. Under the circumstances of the pandemic, this grant is meant to help fund teachers' creative ideas to stimulate and inspire students learning in the virtual environment.
Grants are awarded from a minimum of $100 to a maximum of $500. A volunteer committee of citizens including retired teachers, business people, and parents review the applications. The application process is easy and the grant is awarded directly to the school on behalf of a teacher. Applications are due by 11:59 pm on September 30, 2020. Grant decisions will be announced in October.
All teachers working for Anne Arundel County Public Schools may apply, including but not limited to special needs teachers, music, art, etc. Please note: Projects that appear to have already begun or that have been fully funded elsewhere will not be accepted. Partial funding may be requested if you can provide documentation of having the remaining balance committed from another source.
