Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $500 to Oregon K-12 educators for creative education projects that help fill in the gaps left by school budget shortfalls. Applications are accepted from teachers who live and work in the following Counties: Benton, Baker, Clackamas, Coos, Crook, Curry, Deschutes, Douglas, Grant, Harney, Hood River, Jackson, Jefferson, Josephine, Klamath, Lake, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Malheur, Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Wasco, Washington, or Yamhill.

Funding decisions will be strongly influenced by the following criteria:
-Projects should demonstrate creativity and innovation. Requests for equipment and supplies (calculators, paper, art supplies, books, etc.) will not be funded unless they are a component of a broader, more creative project. Please note that a majority of weight will be based on this standard.
-Projects should include as many students as possible in the current school year.
-Projects should be designed to have the ability to contribute to student learning in subsequent years.

SELCO's funding should have a major impact on project implementation. If, to be successful, a project requires more than SELCO’s $500 Mini-Grant, the budget must outline the source of additional funding needed and whether it has been confirmed.

Lower funding amounts than requested may be granted as project “seed money” when a top score is not reached but a project still merits financial support. Seed money will be furnished as budget allows.
