Schools and Community Outreach by Educators (SCORE) Grants
The Illinois Education Association announces the availability of grant funds. All IEA members are encouraged to apply. Grants for up to $1,000 are available for IEA members and their local associations to collaborate and create opportunities for community service or school projects.
Please note: The selection rubric used to review applications has been updated to provide the following incentives: project proposals by member pairs that include an early career member, application ideas related to the challenges resulting from COVID-19 and/or social justice. The advisory group has recommended funding in the past for member pairs and trios that demonstrate collaboration between veteran and early career members. Educators with more than 10 years of membership are able to apply with, or without, a partner. Please scroll down a bit and find a list of previous projects for ideas.
2021 SCORE grant applications are now being accepted.
Application due date: January 15, 2022 11:59 p.m.
Duration: Grants will fund activities that should be completed no later than December 1, 2023.
All applications submitted by July 15, 2021 were reviewed and notified by email of funding status on September 1, 2021 from firstname.lastname@example.org.
