Classroom Teacher Grants

Classroom Teacher Grants

KDP’s mission is to inspire and equip teachers to thrive. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Judith F. Evans and Mr. Ralph M. Evans, donors, chapters, and the KDP Store, we provide financial assistance to support this mission with Classroom Teacher Grants. We will offer 30 grants of $200 each to practicing PreK–12 teachers and student teachers through the Classroom Teacher Grants.

What could you do with $200 for your students? You are invited to submit a compelling application for your creative, engaging, and impactful projects. The grant funds have been impactful for past recipients who established classroom libraries, purchased much-needed supplies, created makerspaces, incorporated yoga and mindfulness into learning, funded field trips and guest speakers, and utilized new technologies, among other endeavors.

Classroom Teacher Grants are available once per year. The 2023–2024 application cycle is open and closes at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 30. Classroom Teacher Grants are a benefit for active paid members.  A member may apply for one grant per cycle. Grant money will be awarded directly to the recipient via ACH. All recipients submit a survey to share the impact of the grant funds.
