Grants

 

Grants are one way to get money for your classroom. Often times, teacher shy away when they hear the word grant but that translates to a better chance for you and me.

Over the last few years, I received thousands of dollars towards classroom projects and professional developments from grants.

Virginia Professional Educators has a classroom grant and a professional development grant twice a year. The application is simple, open to non-members, and averages $300.  This is how I paid for a large amount of my Master’s degree. The fall grant deadline is quickly approaching so apply soon. 

The National Education Association has a large section of grants available. They have several pages worth of grants. Take a look and see if any work for your situation.

The Virginia Beach Education Association has innovative grants in the fall and spring. While the fall deadline has passed the spring application is open.  This grant has funded many classroom projects of mine totaling in about $3,500. 

Be sure to check your local associations and unions for similar grants.
