Grants for the Classroom

Publicly funded schools don't have the budgets to bring sufficient creativity to the classroom. Applying for and being awarded a classroom grant has the power to reinvigorate the mindsets of teachers, giving them a fresh perspective on how valuable their work is and inspiring them to grow and learn alongside their students. proudly lists hundreds of grants for children, serving a wide variety of school, community and health related initiatives. If you operate or volunteer for a nonprofit that supports the mental, physical or emotional health of children in your community, be sure to search the available grants in support of your cause. 

Current GrantWatch listings include exciting and interesting opportunities for both teachers and students. Classroom grants provide creative tools for teaching children to learn about responsibility, the environment and social issues. Our grant listings support youth-led community service, promote arts & science programs for deaf students and award fellowships to students thriving in theater arts, just to name a few. 

These innovative methods to get students excited about learning and engaged in their lessons is also a wonderful gift for teachers.

Take a quick look at a few of these new initiatives classroom grants can achieve. Be sure to share with your favorite teachers, educators and students!

  1. I need to find grants that will allow us to purchase housing for students who have aged out of Foster Care and are trying to pursue a college degree. Will you please send me a link to find this kind of funding for these children? Thank in advance for our help.
