$500 Mini Educational Grants

  •  

    The GPISD Education Foundation awarded $500 Mini Grants to 17 educators throughout our school district in the Spring of 2017. These Mini Grants are funded by community partners, and your fellow educators. The Foundation hopes to impact as many classrooms and GPISD programs as possible through these Mini Grants, and encourages you to fill out the one-page Mini Grant Application. 

    • Each applicant is only eligible for one Mini Grant per semester, not multiple
    • The GPISD Education Foundation does not fund travel expenses due to liability reasons

     

    $500 Mini Grant Applications must be completed before Friday, September 29 at 11:59 p.m.

    Mini Grant winners will be announced in the Lovin' What I Do Daily Message email, and on our social media pages.

    If the GPISD Education Foundation Grant Committee approves your Mini Grant you will be asked to pick up a certificate and instruction sheet from the Education Foundation at the GPISD Education Center, 2602 S. Beltline Rd before the funds are transferred to your campus. 

    Mini Grant Funds must be spent within 45 days of acceptance of certificate and instruction sheet, or the funds will be returned to the GPISD Education Foundation. If your item costs less than $500, excess funds are returned to the GPISD Education Foundation, and if your item costs more than $500 the grant recipient is responsible for any additional cost. 

    For promotional purposes, the GPISD Education Foundation requires each grant winner to email a photo of your grant item in use before the end of the school year in May 2018 to alexandra.geerts@gpisd.org
