Grants and Scholarships

Great Idea! Grants

Great Idea! Grants is our annual grant cycle which gives teachers opportunities to apply for funds to support curriculum.

This grant cycle was created to provide teachers with an annual opportunity to apply for funds to support their classroom curriculum with projects and learning supplies based on their own ideas as to what would interest their students.


Teachers assisted with Great Idea! Grants from 2020 - 2022

Teacher Testimonial

Thank you so much for funding our “Digging History” project for our first-grade students at Loudon Elementary School. Students were able to experience digging gems out. This activity went along with our CKLA reading curriculum, History of the Earth domain. Students learned about fifteen different types of minerals, then had the chance to observe these gems with their own eyes. They were able to see how difficult it was to get the gems out and how it took lots of patience.  They were also able to identify and keep the gems! It was an absolute blast for them!

We have other scholarships funding by Kiwanis, and private individuals.
