As school districts continue to experience budget cuts, educators search for new and creative means to fund projects and programs in jeopardy of being eliminated. Committed to students and the educators dedicated to their success, TBA Credit Union is proud to offer this funding opportunity.
Applicants are selected for funding based on how many students benefit from the request, how the request relates to classroom instruction and how funding will impact the future of students. Educators from Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska and Leelanau counties can apply.
- All applicants will be notified within two weeks.
- To allow a range of educators to benefit from the grant program, schools who have not received a grant in the last two years will be given first consideration.
- Recipients who fail to arrange a grant presentation within two months of notification forfeit the award and will need to resubmit an application for consideration.
