Grants to Mankato area, Minnesota public school teachers for programs and activities that enhance educational opportunities for all students. Proposed projects should directly involve students as fully as possible. Funding may be used to compensate experts who come to work with students, but usually not to pay teachers or staff.

Funds may also be used to purchase equipment or to provide field trip transportation, but not when these are ends themselves. Equipment and trips should be integrated with curriculum materials and activities to make a complete project.
