The GEF Teacher Grant Program provides direct grants to teachers in the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) schools in our three priority areas—Visual and Performing Arts, Science and Technology, and Health and Fitness. GEF Teacher Grants are meant to enrich and enhance learning environments at GUSD schools by supporting innovative curriculum and instructional practices. Since 2017, GEF has successfully awarded 26 grants for a total of $37,111, involving 48 GUSD teachers.
The 2019-20 GEF Teacher Grant Deadline – Applications due October 21, 2019!
This year GEF will also launch the Bentley Family New Teacher Fund, which will provide mini grants for supplies and instructional materials to new classroom teachers–new to the profession and new to GUSD. Applications for this program are due September 30, 2019 and must be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GEF Teacher Grants are made possible with generous support from Avery Dennison, Glendale Area Schools Credit Union, Glendale Sunrise Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club of Glendale, USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, Rotary Club of Glendale Noon, the Bentley Family Fund, and individual community donors.
