Teacher Grant Program
State Credit Union is pleased to announce our 2021 Teacher Grant Program!
The intent of this program is to fund training, and educational materials to enhance the classroom education experience, including educational field trips. Educators may apply for a grant starting August 17th.
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 2021-2022 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 between August 17, 2021 and September 30, 2021.

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 2021-2022 academic year or it will be forfeited.
