Spring and Fall Mini-Grant Opportunities for Classrooms, Departments and Buildings
Each GAEF Mini-Grant application window will award up to THREE grants of up to $500 each
Applications will be awarded in November 2018 for January 2019 2nd semester implementation and May 2019 for 2019-2020 school year 1st semester implementation
GAEF Mini-Grants are intended to encourage classroom innovation and/or help solve funding challenges that are outside the regular annual building or department budget. GAEF Mini-Grants are NOT intended to supplant or replace funds currently built into building or department budgets.
GAEF Mini-Grant requests must directly benefit student achievement and/or student wellness. Multiple classroom partnerships as well as community partnerships are encouraged.
The Mini-Grant application will be available on 9/10/2018 opening of the Spring grant submissions. Always feel free to contact Rebecca Krishan, GAEF Director, at email@example.com for more information or to discuss additional ways GAEF may be able to serve your students.
