Apply for a Teacher Mini Grant

What is a Teacher Mini-Grant?

Typically a teacher mini-grant ranges between $250 - $1,000 for specific projects or programs including: program enhancement that meets curriculum guidelines, expanding an already existing unit, student awards, special events, educational experiences, professional development, artists in residence and parent involvement programs. Basically, any project you have in your classroom!  Grants are not awarded for basic, everyday supplies; a new bulletin board for the classroom, for example.

Refer to the funding opportunities listed below for specific eligibility requirements.

MAPS Fund Teacher Mini-Grants

Teachers and counselors within the Manistee Area Public Schools (MAPS) district are eligible to apply for MAPS Fund teacher mini-grants. Additional information can be found on the MAPS Fund page on the MAPS website.

Manistee Rotary Education Fund Teacher Mini-Grants

Public and private school teachers and counselors in any Manistee County school are eligible to apply for Manistee Rotary Education Fund teacher mini-grants. Please contact the Foundation office to inquire about application cycles and requirements. Preference will be given to projects or programs that provide an educational experience to students rather than pay for supplies or equipment.  However, funding is not limited to projects that provide an educational experience. 

Deadline and Timeline

An evaluation and photos will be required for each and every mini-grant that is funded.
