Apply for a Teacher Mini-Grant

Oceana's Fall 2015 Teacher Mini-Grant application deadline:
Friday, October 30, 2015

Funding for this program is provided by our Youth Advisory Council. 
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) brings high school students from throughout the county together to provide grants to programs that impact their peers. The YAC is made up of student representatives and adult advisors from 5 Oceana area schools and provides over $16,000 per year in grant awards that impact youth issues.

Our Youth Advisory Council invites teachers to apply for mini-grants to help them out in the classroom. Whether it’s a new idea or that little extra you need to make your lesson plans great, you can brighten your classroom with help from the YAC.

Public and private school teachers and counselors in Oceana County are eligible to apply. You can only submit one application, and grants are limited to one per classroom and one per teacher per school year.

Grants can be up to $250 for specific projects or programs including: program enhancement that meets curriculum guidelines, expanding an already existing unit, student awards, special events, professional development, artists in residence and parent involvement programs. 

Grants are not awarded for basic, everyday supplies. YAC does not typically fund field trips, iPads, or school store projects.

Applications are due by midnight on Friday, October 30, 2015.  Grant awards are distributed about six weeks after the application deadline.

Teacher mini-grant applications should be submitted online via our eGRANT service. An evaluation and photos will be required for each and every mini-grant that is funded.  Please read the instructions prior to creating your registration, or completing the application.
