Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $500 to Illinois and Missouri teachers for innovative and creative teaching methods that will enhance PreK-12 classroom curricula and benefit students in Quincy or Palmyra. One grant will be awarded in each of the following categories: science and technology, arts and humanities, health and fitness, field trip and transportation, books and materials, and special initiatives. Funding is intended for programs which a teacher would not otherwise have the funds to implement.

Grant programs must complement major school district goals and enhance school, departmental, and grade level plans. The grant program is designed to reach a broad range of students. Grant programs should also encourage student participation and broaden their classroom and community involvement and/or may develop alternative and effective methods of learning life skills.

Grants should implement creative ideas by teachers in order to:
- Improve and enhance a classroom’s academic environment.
- Reach a broad range of students and involve them directly and actively.
- Encourage creative and memorable experiences for students.
- Complement major goals of the school district.
- Encourage student participation and broaden their involvement in our community.
- Develop alternative and effective methods of instruction.

Grant applications must:
- Be endorsed by the principal of the applicant’s school.
- Designate a grant consideration category.
- Include detailed listing of expenses and materials required for the project.
