United Education Fund Grants

The United Education Foundation (UEF) is once again sponsoring a Mini-Grant Program for the 2017-2018 school year.  Mini-grants may be written in any academic area including, but not limited to, science, language arts, mathematics, health/physical education, fine arts and technology.

The purpose of the Mini-Grant Program is to encourage the development of innovative classroom or school-based curricular/instructional projects that will impact student learning.  Mini-grants may be submitted by a single teacher or by a subject-area or grade-level team.  The maximum award for each grant proposal selected will be $250.  This amount may be awarded as a single project or as multiple awards.

The mini-grant proposals will be judged using the following criteria:
• Meeting identified needs of students
• Actively involving students in learning
• Addressing state/district learning standards
• Extending, enriching, or enhancing the "regular" program
• Making learning fun.

In addition, bonus points will be added to proposals that integrate subject areas.

Proposals must be received on or before Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.  Proposals received after that date/time will not be considered.  Completed proposals are to be sent to:
United Education Foundation

East Moline IL  61244

Funded mini-grant projects will be announced by Friday, October 6.  The UEF will host an awards reception on October 16 at 4:00 p.m. in the UTHS Library.  Materials for those projects may be ordered after October 17, 2017 allowing those projects to be implemented during the 2017-2018 school year.
