The Glendale Educational Foundation (GEF) announces the second year of the Teacher Grant Program, which makes available 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. In its first year, GEF successfully awarded 14 teacher grants totaling $15,771 involving 21 GUSD teachers.
GEF Teacher Grants intend to enrich and enhance learning environments at GUSD schools by supporting innovative curriculum and instructional practices. GEF will award teachers direct grants to assist with classroom or school-wide 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. GEF Teacher Grant orientations will take place on September 5 from 3:30-4:30 pm at GUSD Admin, room 103 and September 13 from 3:30-4:30 pm. GUSD Admin, room 213.
