Teacher Mini-Grants

Anderson County Students in Science Lab

Teacher mini-grants have been awarded to teachers within the Clinton City and Anderson County School systems on a yearly basis since 2006. The Education Foundation awards an average of $10,000 total per year to teachers within these 20 schools.

Applications are reviewed by a committee with priority given to those teachers whose grant request will affect the largest number of students and those materials or projects that will enrich education for students over a several year time period. Teacher mini-grants are typically awarded at the school board meetings in November of each school year.
