Grants of up to $1,000 to individual pre-K through 12 teachers, and up to $1,500 to collaborative teams of two or more teachers who are working in a school district or charter school in Santa Clara County, California. The purpose of these grants is to encourage teachers to develop new and innovative teaching techniques to improve the academic performance of their students.
Grants are awarded for classroom projects that have clear objectives, a strong evaluation component, and heavy student hands-on involvement. Grants will allow teachers the opportunity to improve the conditions of teaching and learning in their classrooms.
Applications with a science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) component will be given special consideration. Special emphasis is also placed on grant applications serving middle school grades 6-8 regardless of type of school.
Please Note: Field trip grants must be directly related to the curriculum and classroom activities. These would include science camps and college tours, but not trips such as eighth grade trips to Washington D.C. and Disneyland. Teacher Innovation Grants are not intended to become regular funding stream for ongoing projects.
