Teacher Grant Program

Beginning this academic year, the Glendale Educational Foundation (GEF) launches an exciting new initiative, the Teacher Grant Program. This program will make available a total of $15,000 for direct grants to classroom teachers in the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) in our three priority areas—Visual and Performing Arts, Science and Technology, and Health and Fitness.

The Teacher Grants will provide much needed financial support for the classroom that directly benefits our students. The program is intended to enrich and enhance learning environments at GUSD schools by supporting innovative curriculum and instructional practices. GEF will award teachers individual grants to assist with classroom projects, field trips, and instructional materials in our priority areas ranging from $500 to $1,000 (except in the case of collaborative proposals).

GEF will conduct two orientations to familiarize and guide applicants through the process of completing an application. The Teacher Grant orientations will be held on September 7 from 3:30-5:00 pm in GUSD room 213 and September 19 from 3:30-5:00 pm in GUSD room 103. RSVP to info@glened.org.
