The MCIU Education Foundation is interested in funding proposals that positively impact student learning and promote innovation and best practices in teaching and learning for educators employed by the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit. Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded. Funding may be used for educational equipment and technology purchases, software, speakers/consultants, presentations, educational trips and/or books and materials. Applications for laptops, computers or iPads may be accepted but the proposal must clearly define how the technology will be used, specifying the particular applications and their purposes, as well as rationale for why this is not part of program budgets. Applications for technology devices and/or software requiring the purchase of ongoing service plans will not be accepted.
The Innovative Educator Grant Program application is now available and is accepted in rolling fashion throughout the school year.
