Grants of up to $500 to Rhode Island middle and high school teachers for educational programs or projects that involve the literature, history, and stories of the Holocaust. The purpose of this award is to support qualified educators in teaching the history of the Holocaust in order to promote human dignity and justice and serve as a memorial to its victims.

Funding may be used for improving their personal Holocaust education or for developing classroom projects, lessons, and materials for teaching Holocaust education during the 2018-2019 school year.

Though the grant may be used for any Holocaust-related use, the following list provides some acceptable uses: for a Holocaust workshop fee, for a Holocaust course tuition, Holocaust-related videos, DVDs, books or posters, a trip to a Holocaust memorial museum, computer hardware or software used for your unit, materials for Holocaust display, and a speaker fee.
