Teacher Classroom Grants: Making a Difference

The Board of Trustees of the Loudoun Education Foundation awards teacher grants in the spring and fall each year. LEF supported the Fall 2017 grant program with a $20,000 committment--$10,000 from LEF and the remaining $10,000 from a grant for matching funds from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation. Additional funds are provided by Palmercare Chiropractic.

Congratulations to the Fall 2017 LEF Teacher Grant recipients whose 38 projects total more than $25,000!

Grants Available

LEF awards teacher grants in the Spring and Fall each year. Primary consideration will be given to proposals that:

  • • Affect as many students as possible and benefit a diverse student group
  • • Involve students as much as possible
  • • Supplement and/or enhance the standard curriculum and ordinary teaching methods
  • • Promote inter-classroom, interdisciplinary and/or joint teacher projects
  • • Have comprehensive, yet succinct applications
  • • Preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate support through matching funds, if other grant criteria have been met

For each application, the maximum grant amount is $500, with no minimum. Two special grants of up to $1,500 each are available during the fall and spring application period. Preference will be given to applications that demonstrate support through matching funds, if other grant criteria have been met.

Applications must be submitted by the person who will implement the proposed project. For details on eligibility and award criteria, as well as application instructions, please see the Teacher Grant Application Instructions below.

The Fall 2017 grant cycle is now closed. The deadline for applications was 5PM on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.
