Educator Initiative Grants
Educator Initiative Grants (EIG) are awarded to individual classroom teachers or teams teaching within Cherry Creek Schools. The grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward INNOVATIVE and creative instructional approaches used in accomplishing program objectives. These Grants are a greenhouse for nurturing new and potentially scalable instructional programs. Grant requests of up to $1,000 are awarded. The Foundation requests a subsequent evaluation to determine IMPACT to the students.
During the 2018-19 school year, Cherry Creek Schools Foundation funded a record-breaking $135,105 to 150 teachers! (Read the full story about our 2018-19 grants here.) The impacts of these grants will be felt by one-in-two students across the district.
Grant applications are OPEN until September 15th, 2019 at 11:59 pm.
