The intent of SCU's Teacher Grant Program is to fund programs, training, and educational materials to enhance the classroom education experience, including educational field trips.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation's largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.
Applicants to SCU's Teacher Grant Program must meet all of the following criteria:
1. Be a middle or high school educator teaching for the 2017-18 academic year in a public school district in the SCU Service Area. (If selected to receive a grant, the teacher's employment and project must be verified by the principal, superintendent, or other school official.)
2. Plan and implement a project that enhances student learning beyond the classroom education experience. (Teachers applying collaboratively for a project may only submit a single grant application to be completed by the lead teacher.)
3. Be a current member, or become a member, of State Credit Union.
4. Apply for a grant on or before September 28, 2017.
State Credit Union staff and their immediate family are not eligible to apply.
State Credit Union has a maximum of $6,000 available for the program and individual grants will be up to a maximum of $500, based on the requested budget. Grants must be used within the 2017-18 academic year or it will be forfeited.
