Grant Description
Grants of up to $1,500 to North Carolina educators in eligible locations for professional development opportunities. Funding is intended for training, educational programs, and projects that enhance the quality of classroom instruction. The purpose of the program is to improve education in local public schools. Requests will be accepted from educators employed by the Wilkes County School System.

Grants will be made for educational experiences, training, or projects that will result in teachers’ improved classroom effectiveness. Grants may be made for enrichment studies such as university study expeditions, self-designed educational experiences that focus on individual research, and specialized training through participation in seminar or conference programs.  

Priority is given to requests that demonstrate the following:

  • Impact on students
  • Professional development of the applicant
  • Connection of the educational experience/project to classroom content
  • The dissemination of activities and lessons to other educators.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Only full or part-time educators employed by the Wilkes County School System who directly interact with students are eligible to apply. Previous winners are eligible to reapply three years after receiving an Eller grant.

Funds cannot be used for salary support of applicants, for graduate studies, for national board certification, or for add-on licensure.

C.B. Eller teacher grant applications are considered once a year in the spring; applicants will receive a decision after a two-month review period.
