Educator Grants

Innovative Teaching Grants


The Foundation’s goal for grants is to select projects and/or programs for funding that are innovative and stimulate students’ learning and creativity by enhancing the existing curriculum. PEF awards Innovative Teaching Grants up to $2,000 for programs or projects initiated by an individual educator, and up to $5,000 for programs or projects initiated by teams or departments.


Applications are now available for 2022 grants.

These awards will fund programs to be implemented in the 2021-2022 school year. To help us plan for the process, we are requesting that you let us know if you intend to apply for a grant. Submit your intent to apply using this link.

Please read through the packet carefully before beginning, as some changes have been made to the application and the process. Check out this online, self-paced webinar for training on the grant process.

Contact PEF (512-594-0375) if you have any questions.
