Grants of up to $1,000 to Rhode Island full-time public school teachers to enhance classroom education for third- and fourth-grade students. Consideration will be given to projects that will advance classroom learning through integration into future or existing units of study.

Eligible expenses include classroom equipment and materials, field trip expenses, software licenses, and other resources that would not otherwise be available.

Spark Grants are for one-time expenses and cannot provide ongoing funding to sustain projects. Supplies alone are not eligible, unless the teacher makes a compelling case for how the supplies would engage and stimulate their students in a new and unique way.
