August is National Back to School Month. To celebrate, GrantWatch is shining the spotlight on 10 education grants.
The beginning of the school year brings a lot of excitement for students, parents, and teachers about what is to come. However, the expense of going back to school can put a damper on the whole process.
Now that learning has returned to the classroom, many families are struggling to afford school supplies. Teachers are having to spend their own money to buy classroom supplies, and many schools are also in need of funding to improve resources.
Nonetheless, the quality of education shouldn’t be impacted by lack of funding. With this in mind, we hope your school or home can benefit from the latest grants we have found! These grants provide a variety of resources for children including school supplies, technology, and internet access, as well as funding for education programs.

Additionally, grants can also be found for preschools, elementary schools, high schools, and post-secondary education (IHEs). There is also a category designated just for teachers to help avoid out-of-pocket costs for their classrooms. While funding is available for schools, it is unfortunate that only a fraction of faculty applies for grants.
Schooling helps children to gain important skills, knowledge, and values, which sets them up for further learning and participation in their community. Therefore, by providing children and youth with enhanced education and support networks, it can maximize their life opportunities.
