Grants for Gifted Education Teachers

Sunday, July 24, 2005 - by JMcIntosh - Category: Gifted Education
Finding grant money for special projects and activities can be a challenge for classroom teachers; however, there are opportunities out there. In each issue of Prufrock Press' journal, Gifted Child Today, the editors feature a select number of grants that seem particularly appropriate for teachers of gifted children.

For example, teachers wishing to write a unique unit or classroom project dealing with the environment, will be interested in the following listing from the most recent Gifted Child Today: "The Captain Planet Foundation supports environmental projects fro children and youth. All projects must promote understanding of environmental issues; focus on hands-on involvement; involve children and young adults ages 6-18; promote interaction and cooperation within the group; help young people develop planning and problem-solving skills; include adult supervision, and commit to follow-up communication with the sponsor. Grant amount is from $250 to $2,500. Application are reviewed quarterly. For more information, contact Taryn Murphry, 133 Luckie St., 2nd Fl., Atlanta, GA 30303 or visit http://www.captainplanetfdn.org/aboutUs.html."

You can find other grants and awards in each issue of Gifted Child Today.
