GIPS Foundation announces opening of 2021-22 Classroom Grant Application for Round Two
The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation is pleased to offer the second round of the 2021-2022 annual mini-grant cycle. "The GIPS Foundation is committed to investing in students. The last couple of years have been challenging for our students and staff and we are so proud of their GRIT (Grand Island Tenacity). These classroom grants are offered as a mechanism to fund creative strategies to engage students and give them robust opportunities that might look different in this new environment," said Vikki Deuel, GIPS Foundation Board President.
Last school year, 17 mini-grants were funded across the district that impacted approximately 5,790 students. The mini-grant fund is established via the Add it Up to Opportunity! Staff and Board fund drive and Community Fund Drives held during the 2020-2021 school year.
Grant awards will range from $100 - $2,000.
The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation awards mini-grants in two rounds on an annual basis. Mini-grants are designed to fund educational opportunities for students that are not available through the school district's general budget. Only applicants with a @gips.org email address are eligible for grants.
Round 2 Deadlines:
- December 15 - open
- January 28 at 4:00 pm - closed
