WHAT IS A MINI-GRANT?
The Education Foundation of Oconee County, Inc. has developed a program offering Mini-Grants to Oconee County teachers and staff who wish to implement creative, innovative educational projects for which funding is not available through regular school sources.
Mini-grant monies may be used to purchase materials, supplies, equipment, etc., necessary for the successful completion of the project. For example, a Mini-Grant could be used to purchase science equipment for a special science experiment, or to purchase software packages for computer applications in any number of curriculum areas, or to fund parent study skill programs designed to improve the quality of parental involvement in their childâ€™s homework.
Specialized educational trips will be considered only if they are an integral part of the proposed project. Mini-grant funds may not be used as personal honoraria for the applicant, other teachers, or other school personnel.
