Project Classroom Grant
THE APPLICATION PERIOD FOR FALL 2021 HAS CLOSED
Greater Iowa Credit Union (GICU) proudly supports teachers in our communities. We have developed a unique classroom innovation grant program designed to help teachers gain access to additional financial resources needed to fund creative educational experiences or innovative hands-on programs to promote dynamic and fun learning.
Project Classroom, our grant program for K-8 teachers, awards eight grants of $1,000 each, 4 in the spring and 4 in the fall to teachers of registered Iowa Department of Education schools within the 33 counties of GICU’s membership area (see list below).
