Next Grant Cycle

The Mini-Grant application period has closed for the 2017-18 school year.  We are excited to announce that we received 190 applications this year!  We will be making Mini-Grant awards during the months of November, December, and January.


If you missed out on this year’s Mini-Grants, it will be available again next fall.  You can also check out our Innovative Grants, which is the next grant opportunity we offer. 

We are continually amazed at what our educators can do with an investment of $500 in their program or classroom.  The ideas presented in the Mini-Grant applications are often some of our most creative, including drones to teach math, a geocaching club, and the sew to read project.  Please click here for a listing of all past Mini-Grants awarded and to ignite your innovation as you think about what you would like to do to increase student success and how we can help.  Since fall 2013, we have awarded more than 300 Mini-Grants to educators in SAISD.
