The Foundation for FCPS invites teachers to apply for its discretionary grant program for the 2019-20 school year. This grant opportunity was created in 2018 to support classroom initiatives that focus on developing or enhancing work-based learning, career exploration, or workforce readiness opportunities for students. Grant awards will range between $1,000 – $2,500 and be given to projects that are innovative and creative, enhance the standard curriculum and teaching methods, and have connections to Portrait of a Graduate. The application period will open on March 1 and close April 12, with funding provided to the schools in August, 2019. A link to the application can be found here.
More information about the grant program, past award winners, and a pdf of the application form for the 2019 grant program can be found on the Foundation’s website.
