Teacher Grants

The Geauga County Retired Teachers Association offers mini grants in amounts up to $250.00 to teachers in any of the public schools in Geauga county.  Grants are intended to be used to support, in part or in whole, an innovative educational project that would otherwise not be possible because of a lack of school funds.

Funds are raised at every chapter meeting by a 50/50 raffle.

Additionally the East Geauga Kiwanis and the Huntsburg Grange are financial sponsors of this program.

Teacher applications must be received by by March 1st of every year.
The application form for 2017-18 awards will be posted under the Document tab after 10/1/17.

NOTE: The former designation of Teacher Mini Grants was changed to Educational Mini Grants at the October 2017 Executive Committee meeting and is referred to on the web site tabs as "Teacher Grants" to differentiate this program from the grants offered to college seniors.
