$10,000 Grants for Science Teachers
Science teachers can apply for a 2006 Toyota TAPESTRY grant and receive up to $10,000. Each year Toyota partners with the National Science Teachers Association to fund the Toyota TAPESTRY program, the largest K-12 science teacher grant program in the nation. Grants worth up to $10,000 are given to those teachers who make science come alive with their creativity and vision.
Open to K-12 teachers of science residing in the United States or U.S. territories or possessions. All middle and high school science teachers and elementary teachers who teach some science in the classroom are eligible.
Proposals must describe a project including its potential impact on students, and a budget up to $10,000 (up to $2,500 for mini-grants). Toyota TAPESTRY grants are awarded in three categories:
- Environmental Science Education
- Physical Science Applications
- Literacy and Science Education
