How many grants are awarded each grant cycle? That depends on the number of applications and available grant funds and the quality of the grant applications.
Are there any restrictions to what grants are funded? Grants for facilities or improvements to facilities will not be funded. Also, computers and smartboards are rarely funded. Generally, the grant committee looks for "innovative teaching". It also considers whether the request is or should be funded through the normal budget process.
Grant funds are to be used for innovative teaching grants. Creativity should be evident in the application.
How will the grant benefit students?
Is there evidence of expected higher order thinking skills?
Are the materials requested normally funded by the campus or district?
Does the grant proposal state a clear purpose?
Are the activities and evaluation clearly stated?
How many students will be impacted?
Remember: Grants are not intended to be a way to upgrade or replenish campus materials, supplies or technology needs normally supplied by tax dollars.
