Foundation / Corporation
Junior League of Spartanburg (JLS)
Grants of up to $600 to Spartanburg County, South Carolina school teachers and educators and grants of up to $1,000 to teams for classroom programs and activities. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of benefit to students, creativity, efficient use of funds, degree of student involvement, and adaptability of the project for use by other teachers.
Applicants should keep the following in mind when applying for Mini-Grants:
-Projects should directly involve students.
-Funds can be used to purchase equipment or to provide field-trip transportation, but not when these activities are ends in themselves.
-Portions of grants can be used to compensate experts who work with students, but may not be used to pay public school teachers or staff.
GrantWatch ID#: 176234
Teachers may apply for individual grants up to six hundred dollars ($600), or team grants up to one thousand dollars ($1,000).
Projects must be implemented during the 2018-2019 school year.
The Junior League of Spartanburg provides Spartanburg County school teachers with funding.
While this program uses the term “teachers”, the Junior League is aware there have been many changes in school personnel since Mini-Grants were first offered. The Junior League uses the term “teachers” in an inclusive sense to include such educators as Media Specialists and Guidance Counselors, to name a few. In the past, applications have been received from individuals with similar titles within school systems. The Junior League welcomed those applications then and continue to encourage them now.
If the Total Project Cost exceeds the maximum amount that can be awarded, the applicant must indicate where they will seek additional funding.
Applications are due no later than, Monday, November 20, 2017.
Applicants whose grants are chosen for funding will be notified during the month of March 2018.
