Grant Application Process

If you would like to write a grant for your school or department please review the document below.

Send a copy of the completed grant application to the Teacher Center along with the Preliminary Application Review (previously called the Step One Form) signed by your principal before submitting it to the granting agency. Once you have received a copy of the approved PAR form back from our office you may then submit your application to the granting agency. Be mindful of time frame as applications above $5,000 require additional SAB routing.

Keep in mind the Teacher Center does not submit grant applications on behalf of applicants.
