$1000 INNOVATIVE GRANTS

 

Loveday Foundation $1000 Grants For Innovative Teachers

Past Winners List

The Board of Trustees of the Loveday Foundation in cooperation with the Georgia Independent School Association has voted to award three (3) separate $1,000 grants in the Fall of each year to a teacher or group of teachers in an association member school. These grants will be based on a creative, innovative, and original project to promote innovative activities to motivate students and to improve the teaching and learning process.

The procedures for applications and other details pertaining to this grant follow. Teachers should be planning now to develop a creative project they wish to apply for at that time. Please distribute this announcement to all potentially interested faculty in your school.

An innovative project is one that places the emphasis on the students and not the teachers. It should contain original and innovative ideas; should involve significant numbers of students; and it should have an impact which continues over time.

An innovative project is not one which has as its main focus teacher advancement, travel, or a teacher’s course of study.
