WAETAG is committed to supporting educators, so we are thrilled to expand our support through our new Educator Mini-Grants. We hope to provide educators with opportunities for professional development and/or support for their classrooms. If there’s a seminar you really want to attend, you need new tools for your classroom, or you want to provide a new opportunity for your students; we’d like to help.
Mini-grants are awarded in amounts of $100 – $1000, with an average award of $250.
We strive to support as many educators as possible with grants, and so grant requests for lower dollar amounts have an increased likelihood of being selected.
