The foundation is pleased to offer a Teacher Grant Program for faculty at Nickajack. This program allows teachers to apply for funding for curriculum enhancements, STEAM-focused equipment and supplies, and professional development opportunities.

In order to be awarded funding, teachers are required to submit a grant application.  Applications for the 2022-23 school year were accepted through October 21, 2022 and the initial round of approved grants were awarded on November 10, 2022.    

Grant Application Form

Once grant applications have been received, a grant committee comprised of Foundation Board Members will read and score the applications based on a rubric. 

Applications are evaluated based on the following considerations: 

  • Does the grant fit within the mission of the foundation?
  • What population of the school will the grant benefit?
  • Is the amount of the grant justified based on the population it will serve?
  •  Does the school district provide this product or service currently?  
  • Does the school have the appropriate infrastructure in place to support this request?
