Grants of up to $1,000 to Florida K-12 teachers in eligible regions for innovative instructional projects. Consideration will be given to programs with inventive projects that challenge students and encourage learning and enrich and enhance the curriculum. Applicants must be located in Miami-Dade County.

Innovator Grants provide funds to teachers to develop and implement instructional projects that motivate and challenge students to learn. Submitted proposals should be for unique projects that enliven and enrich the curriculum. Many past grants have included interdisciplinary, active-learning, hands-on lessons. Others have reinforced learning through simulations or applied school work to real-life situations. 

While the Foundation welcomes projects for funding in any category, there is additional funding made available for projects addressing specific areas of study. The current areas are STEM/STEAM, Robotics, Holocaust Education, and Financial Literacy.
