Kokomo Public Schools Education Foundation Mini-Grants

The Kokomo Public Schools Education Foundation would like to help you enhance the learning that takes place in your classroom. The Foundation Board of Directors will award up to 6 ~ $500.00 mini-grants to Kokomo School Corporation teachers each semester. Additional funding up to a total of $1000.00 may be considered by the committee for unique projects. In the past nine years, the Foundation has written grant checks to Kokomo Schools teachers for more than $47,000.00.

The current application form was distributed along with this memo through email to all Kokomo Schools' certified staff members. As the mini-grant explanation sheet denotes, our local Education Foundation simply wishes to "encourage innovative and creative teaching in the classroom."
