GRAETC Mini-Grants – Apply Now!

Today is the day. Remember that idea you had that would “positively impact the Greater Richmond Area educational community by providing connected learning opportunities to build capacity around innovative and sound pedagogical use of instructional technology resources”, …. but you just didn’t have the funding to implement? Well, now is your chance. GRAETC Mini-Grants are open! 

That’s right – our GRAETC Mini-Grant Applications are open for 2024. Mini-grant funds may be used for supplies, equipment, or other materials essential to the integration of the innovative and sound pedagogical use of instructional technology. Last year we had a variety of awardees. Did you see our recent blog post celebration, Engaged In Learning With Podcasting, where one of last year’s awardees purchased podcasting equipment? Interested in hearing a podcast outcome? Let us allow you to be convinced to take a trip to Saint Lucia – listen to this student group made podcast as a sample:

Amazing student empowered work, right? We have been celebrating our awardees and the work they are doing to support connected learning opportunities through social media during this school year, but would love the opportunity to celebrate your award next year! 

The committee will be accepting applications for our new grant cycle beginning today, March 1. The application deadline is May 1, 2024, so don’t wait to submit your idea! To learn more about the GRAETC Mini-Grants please visit our dedicated webpage:
