Teachers - Procedure for Grant Application
Investor Education Grant Program
Eligible applicants are public schools and non-profit groups (IRC § 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations) that provide investment education to students in grades 5 through 12. Twenty-two schools and one non-profit organization received a total of almost $125,000.00 for the 2017-2018 school year. The suggested grant request range is between $2500 and $5000 although grant proposals for more or less than the suggested range will be considered. The Commissioner will determine the grant award based upon the merit of the program, other school resources and the number of students educated. The proposal due date is September 28, 2018. Grant awards will be issued by November 15, 2018. Projects must be completed by March 29, 2019.
