Grant Programs

The Foundation's grant programs were initiated in 1992 to encourage teacher innovation, improve student performance and recognize best practices. We encourage all Clark County teachers, counselors, support staff and administrators to review our grants and apply.

SPRINGS PRESERVE SCIENCE GRANT
In collaboration with the Springs Preserve, The Public Education Foundation offers the Springs Preserve Science Grant.

TEACHER TO TEACHER
MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE GRANT

The Teacher to Teacher Mathematics and Science Grant was established by two Clark County School District teachers as an encouragement for teachers to increase their content knowledge in mathematics and science and broaden their repertoire of teaching strategies. All teachers in the Clark County School District who provide direct services to students may apply for matching funds for professional development opportunities in the fields of mathematics and science. The award may be used for a variety of professional development opportunities in mathematics and/or science, including seminars, workshops and conferences. Applications for this grant opportunity will be available again in early 2013.

MYRA GREENSPUN TEACHER EXCELLENCE AWARD

Each year, The Public Education Foundation accepts nominations for the Myra Greenspun Teacher Excellence Award. One teacher is selected to receive an award of $3,000 to be used in his/her classroom or for professional development as well as an honorarium of $1,000. In addition, the selected teacher receives 500 credits to be used at The Public Education Foundation’s Teacher EXCHANGE™. Applications will be accepted again in the Spring 2013.
