Kids In Need Teacher Grants provide K-12 educators with funding to provide innovative learning opportunities for their students. The Kids In Need Foundation helps to engage students in the learning process by supporting our most creative and important educational resource – our nation’s teachers. The Teacher Grants are funded by retail and education credit union sponsors, which make the application available at their outlets during the back-to-school season and on this website. This year all teachers that apply will receive a special gift of poster making and bulletin board supplies from ArtSkills! Teacher Grant awards range from $100 to $500 each and are used to finance creative classroom projects. Typically, 300-600 grants are awarded each year. The applications are judged according to a rubric which emphasizes innovativeness and merit, clarity of objectives, replication feasibility, suitability of evaluation methods, and cost effectiveness. All certified K-12 teachers in the U.S. are eligible.
