Grants of up to $500 to Louisiana first-time teachers to assist with the purchase of instructional materials and supplies to set up their classrooms. These classroom expenses, traditionally supported by the state, district, or school funds, are often paid for by teachers from their personal accounts.

Up to $500

The applicant must be a first year teacher and provide a signed statement by their principal or human resources department attesting to their status.

A+PEL membership is not a requirement, but preference will be given to members.

The applicant agrees that receipts are required for reimbursement and agrees to submit them to the A+PEL office within 30 days of being notified of being the recipient (or attending the conference if for professional development) in order to be reimbursed for expenses related to the grant.

Applicants can be awarded only one A+PEL award within a 365 day time period.
