Fremont Area Community Foundation is accepting applications for mini-grants to support innovative classroom projects. The application for education mini-grants is open through April 16.

Education mini-grants are available to Newaygo County educators teaching preschool through 12th grade in private and public schools as well as state-licensed childhood learning centers and daycare providers. Last year, the Community Foundation awarded 73 mini-grants to locals schools and educators.

Mini-grants support classroom programs or projects that assist in reaching the Community Foundation’s Goal 2025 initiative. All applications must meet one of the Community Foundation’s education priorities: kindergarten readiness, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math), literacy, remediation, or creating a positive college and career-oriented culture.

Applications must be submitted by teachers through each school’s administration office and are due to the Community Foundation by April 16. Educators interested in applying must follow their school’s internal deadlines.
