Teachers, The Deadline Has Been Extended
With Hurricane Florence packing quite a punch, South River EMC has extended the Bright Ideas deadline.
The application period for the 2018-2019 application period is Monday, September 24, this gives teachers a few extra days to firm up ideas and get them submitted.
The Bright Ideas grant program offers grants to teachers for innovative, classroom-based projects and ideas. Applications can be for anything, such as books, technology, manipulatives, and items to keep students engaged.
Each year, South River EMC awards at least $50,000 for classroom projects and materials. Teachers applying must be from a certified K-12 public school, and can apply for a maximum grant amount of $2,500 from the Cooperative. There is no limit to the amount of times you can apply.
Before submitting, make sure to have someone proofread your grant, it goes a long way in avoiding errors and submitting a great proposal. Be sure to have your principal’s approval before the grant is submitted.
Statewide, cooperatives annually fund over $530,000 in grants. Since its inception, the Bright Ideas Grant program has funded $11.5 million in grants and has touched the lives of over 2.2 million North Carolina students.
