The Pelican Foundation for Creative Education
The Pelican Foundation for Creative Education is offering grants of up to $500 to middle and high school teachers.

A variety of projects such as chess clubs and school trips are funded, and art teachers who need materials are encouraged to apply. Teachers of literature might consider books or magazine subscriptions for their classes. Teachers who collaborate between disciplines are also encouraged to apply.
The application deadline is November 30th, 2016. To learn more about this opportunity and to access the application click here.
