Mini-Grants for Creative Classroom Projects

The Guilford County Enrichment Fund encourages creative, hands-on classroom projects by providing grants to teachers who have innovative ideas on how to supplement the curriculum.

General Information
Individual grants are limited to a maximum of $500. Group projects must include 3 or more teachers and can be awarded up to $1,200.

In order to receive a grant, projects must be hands-on, student-powered projects.

Grants will be awarded to projects that supplement the regular classroom curriculum and stimulate academic growth.

Grants will not be awarded for performers, workshop leaders, tablets, computers, food, supply lists, or instructional kits.

Grant money must be spent in this school year and cannot be carried over to next school year. Unused money must be returned.

Grants can be partially funded.
