Via Credit Union is once again providing preK-12 educators with funding to provide innovative learning opportunities for their students. Over the years, ViaCU has funded 116 projects totaling over $47,000 to area teachers.
Projects that may qualify for funding should make creative use of common teaching aids, approach the curriculum from an imaginative angle, or tie non-traditional concepts together for the purpose of illustrating commonalities.
Grant amounts between $100 and $500 will be awarded. Some examples of past projects include: a glow in the dark show, use of robotics and musical instruments. View Teacher Grant Guidelines.
