Thank you for your interest in Cape Cod 5's Educational Mini-Grant Program. The application period for the 2023–2024 school year has closed as of November 1, 2023. Applications for the 2024-2025 school year will open in September, 2024.
Every year, Cape Cod 5 provides thousands of dollars in mini-grants to fund educational projects to public school teachers in the communities we serve. Since its inception in 2000, more than 1,600 mini-grants, totaling over $675,000, have been awarded.
Educational Mini-Grants are grants for amounts up to $500 given to local public school teachers to fund educational projects. Last year, grants were awarded to teachers at 83 schools in our communities.
Teachers throughout Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Plymouth County who are employed as a classroom instructor at any public school are eligible to apply.
Traditionally, we have prioritized imaginative projects that foster creative thinking and have broad impact. We understand that the past few years have posed unique challenges in education and will be using more flexible criteria in considering applications. However the top five most creative projects (as identified by our review committee) will receive $1,000!
Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are no longer being accepted as of November 1, 2023. Applications for the 2024-2025 school year will open in September, 2024.
