Grants to Colorado teachers and educational personnel to develop educational projects and teaching strategies in eligible communities. Funding is intended to promote student learning. Grant funds may be used to fund field trips, to enhance existing projects, to hire consultants, and to develop effective teaching strategies. Grants will be awarded to K-12 educators in Weld County.

Proposed projects must be submitted by an eligible educator and may involve field trips, environmental or science projects, artistic or cultural experiences, civics or community service projects, and the creation of a final student product that promotes student learning. These grants are meant as a supplement to general operating funds, not as a substitute. A teacher may only be involved with one application per year.

Grant monies may be used:
  • To develop and implement creative and imaginative teaching approaches and techniques
  • To enhance or expand current projects that demonstrate success
  • To underwrite field trips and related expenses that are integral components of a project
  • To hire consultants as necessary resources for a project to be successful
