The 2018 Teacher Grant Award Program is open for submissions March 20, 2018.
The due date is May 1, 2018.
Notification will take place by June 1, 2018.
A funding ceremony will take place in September and grant monies will be awarded to the Dartmouth Public Schools shortly after.
Generally speaking, preference will be given to grant applications that:
- Contain an itemized budget (a budget that lists 10 widgets at $20 per widget and 5 baskets at $10 per basket is preferable to a budget that lists $250 for widgets and baskets)
- Purchase materials that are reusable (an eternal license for software is preferable to a one year software license)
- Benefit a large number of students (books for an entire grade, to be shared across classrooms in a school, are preferable to books for a single classroom)
- Are instructional in nature (materials for STEM lessons are preferable to classroom furniture)
