26 Jun Mini-Grants for Teachers
About Mini Grants for Teachers
Since 1986, the Junior League of Spartanburg has been providing Spartanburg County school teachers with funding they need for classroom activities and programs.
While we use the term “teachers” the Junior League is aware there have been many changes in school personnel since we first began Mini-Grants in 1986. We use the term “teachers” in an inclusive sense to include such educators as Media Specialists and Guidance Counselors, to name a few. In the past we have received applications from individuals with similar titles within school systems. We welcomed those applications then and continue to encourage them now.
Teachers may apply for individual grants up to six hundred dollars ($600), or team grants up to one thousand dollars ($1,000). If the Total Project Cost exceeds the maximum amount that can be awarded, the applicant must indicate where they will seek additional funding.
Applications are judged anonymously by a panel of educators, administrators, and community leaders involved in education. The panel considers the following factors when evaluating applications: creativity, benefit to students, degree of student involvement, efficient use of funds, and adaptability of project for use by other teachers.
If you have any general guideline questions, please email Katy Hardee directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Junior League office at 583-5842.
