The Pelham Education Foundation is pleased to offer to teachers and administrators the opportunity to apply for mini grants (for any amount up to $5,000) or micro grants (for any amount up to $1,000) to support educational projects that are outside the annual school budget.
The goal of our mini and micro grant programs is to foster and reward faculty initiative by funding creative and innovative projects that enrich the standard curriculum and directly enhance educational opportunities for a significant number of students.
The Foundation will award mini grants (up to $5,000) at the
December 2014 Foundation board meeting. The deadline for applications is Friday, November
7, 2014 and all project proposals will be presented to the Foundation board at its December 2014 meeting.
If you have questions about teacher-initiated mini grants, please contact
Michele Tarazi, the Foundation’s Project Development chair, by e-mail at
The directors of the Foundation would like to provide you with as much guidance as possible so that your application will have the best chance to be successful.
