All applicants will be notified of the results by mail this week and schools will receive funding for use as outlined in the winning proposals.

 

More than 4,000 students, grades K-12, will benefit from the classroom projects made possible through funding by California’s table grape growers.  The projects will be implemented in classrooms during the 2014-15 school year.  This program is one of the many ways growers give back to the communities where they live and work.

The next funding cycle for the Innovation in Teaching education grants will be in the fall of 2015.  For information, contact educationgrants@grapesfromcalifornia.com.

 

The Innovation in Teaching education grants are part of a community service program of the California Table Grape Commission, funded by California’s table grape growers.
