Project Classroom Grant Program

Project Classroom banner

We understand that money is tight for teachers. That’s why we’ve developed a special grant program to allow teachers to purchase items they may not otherwise be able to afford. Greater Iowa Credit Union offers Project Classroom, a grant program for K-5 teachers. Five grants of $1,000 each will be awarded to teachers who teach within the 33 Iowa counties of Greater Iowa’s membership.

The 2016 application period is August 1 - September 16, 2016.

ProjectClassroom grant funds can be used for classroom supplies, technology, equipment, field trips – there are plenty of possibilities!

  • Does the project have compelling, creative or unique features which makes it stand out from traditional approaches to classroom teaching?
  • Are the project costs adequately detailed in the essay/proposal?
  • If funded with a grant, would the project have the support of the school’s administration?
