San Diego teachers with a class project idea can apply for a $500 grant from North Island Credit Union, the company announced Tuesday.
NICU will award 10 grants of $500 each to San Diego teachers as part of its bi-annual teacher grant program. The program has awarded $70,000 to teachers in Southern California since its inception in 2012. Full-time teachers with an idea for an “innovative classroom learning opportunity” with clearly defined objectives can apply for a grant.
“We hope this grant encourages teachers to make their dream project a reality for their students, and ask any teacher who has a great idea that needs a little extra funding to apply for one of our grants,” said California Credit Union President and CEO Steve O’Connell.
Teachers interested in applying are encouraged to visit northisland.ccu.com/teachergrant. The application deadline is Oct. 19, and winners will be chosen in November.
