Teacher Innovation Grant Guidelines
OSDF’s goal is to expand learning opportunities for students beyond what is possible with existing school budgets. We encourage projects that take innovative, creative approaches to teaching the curriculum. Examples of funded proposals include special software and equipment, innovative enhancements to science and music classrooms, hardback or perma-bound books, outdoor classrooms, and maps. OSDF does not merely supplement existing budgets. In fact, OSDF’s bylaws dictate that funds must be expended so as to give maximum educational impact to the students for dollars spent; therefore, OSDF typically funds neither consumables nor standard classroom furniture or equipment.
