We’re giving away money! Apply for KCSS Mini-Grants

Are budget cuts hampering your creative ideas? If so, a KCSS classroom mini-grant just might be the answer to helping you put those ideas into practice.  This year KCSS will award two $250 grants – one each to a K-6 and a 7-12 social studies teacher.

Projects that are eligible for the grant include materials and resources needed to improve instruction or to carry out special projects.  We’re especially looking for mini-grant proposals that will act like a Kickstarter campaign – funding projects and instruction that can be used multiple times with multiple classes rather than a one-time project or event. And while we believe in the power of field trips, KCSS mini-grants are not designed for that type of teaching activity.

(Not a Kansas social studies teacher? Sorry. Jayhawkers only.)
