Grant Guidelines

ITEF funds projects that are innovative, and which elevate learning and exploration. Although we see “innovation” as a mindset, we understand that the definition of innovation is relative and dynamic. We look for projects that engage students, push teachers, and generate excitement and enthusiasm for learning.

  • Grants are generally one year in length
  • Applicants should proceed with knowledge and support from their superintendent/head of school and their Information Technology department.
  • Grant recipients are asked to demonstrate compliance through quarterly reports, mid-project visits, and final reports.
  • Project proposals may support single grade classrooms, multiple grade levels, entire schools, or collaborations with a 501c(3) non-profit partner serving students and/or classroom educators from an accredited school or a charter school.

Grant applications are reviewed and selected by the ITEF Board of Directors and staff.
