Innovation in Education Grant

Innovation in Education Grant for Educators:  The Greene ESC is again offering its Innovation in Education Grant for Educators.  The purpose of this grant is to:

  • fund projects that promote critical thinking and hands on learning. 

  • approach curriculum from an imaginative angle, or tie nontraditional concepts together for the purpose of illustrating commonalities. 

  • support innovative projects that enhance the interest level of education and are easily shared and replicated.

Eligibility: K-12 certified teachers employed and teaching subjects for a Greene County Public School District are eligible to apply for this grant.  This year we will be offering two mini-grants amounting to $1000.00 each.

The application deadline for the grant is September 30th,  of each new grant year and we anticipate naming the recipients and distributing the grants in early October.
