Grants to Hamilton County, Tennessee K-12 public school teachers for innovative and effective teaching projects. Funding is intended to help teachers provide challenging, exciting, and meaningful learning experiences for students. Funding may be awarded for projects in the areas of math; art, music, theater, and drama; sports, PE, and health; science and technology; life skills and guidance; writing, reading, library, and language; history and geography; and special education.
Please use the following guidelines when completing your application for a Mini-Grant:
- Projects should directly involve students as much as possible. For example, an audiovisual program developed for classroom use should be written and produced by students.
- Funds can be used to purchase equipment or to provide field trip transportation, but not when these are the end in themselves. Equipment and trips should be just one component of a well-planned unit of instruction.
- Interdisciplinary, team-teaching projects or projects with multiple age groups are permitted.
- Portions of grants can be used to compensate experts who come to work with students but not to pay public school teachers or staff.
- In keeping with the Junior League's commitment to families and children, projects that include some type of parental involvement in the process are encouraged, when appropriate and possible.
GrantWatch ID#: 172988
