San Diego County teachers are being invited to apply for one of 10 $500 grants.

North Island Credit Union says its biannual Teacher Grant Program is open to any full-time classroom teacher in the county looking to fund an innovative learning opportunity.

The project should have clearly defined learning objectives tied to students’ academic needs, display creativity and benefit a significant number of students, North Island said.

Grants will be awarded in April.

“We hope this program will make it a little easier for educators to impact the lives of our students, and encourage any teacher who has an exciting project idea to take just a few minutes to apply for one of our grants,” said California Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell.

For more information and to apply online, see Application deadline is April 4, 2019.

The program launched in 2012, and the credit union has awarded $85,000 in teacher grants to benefit students across Southern California.
