Grants of up to $1,000 to Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio K-12 schools in the Greater Cincinnati area for innovative educational programs. Funding is intended to support inspiring projects and events that foster student participation; promote multicultural or intergenerational events and diversity; encourage community engagement; and have a lasting impact on the school, staff, and students. Eligible schools may apply from Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren Counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell, and Kenton Counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana.

Learning Links grants allow local K-12 educators the opportunity for creative and interesting projects or events they would like to bring to their schools or classroom. Grant funds may be used to support, expand, or strengthen existing projects or events or launch new projects or events. Funding may also support capital costs for equipment or supplies which then become property of the school.
