Grant Gopher Database Search Tip!
Are you looking for grants to support projects in the classroom? You'll find those types of grants in our "Education" category. This category is for all grants related to in-school K-12 and higher education programs.
• Select your state and county • Select the Education program area • Use the keyword classroom
These types of grants are usually offered via a bi-annual or annual grant cycle so you might not see something available for you now, but keep checking in. Pro users receive an email alert when new grants matching their saved searches are added or updated. Not only that, but they're often notified well in advance of the cycle being open (as soon as we have the dates confirmed), which really helps with the grant planning process. Happy searching!
