Thank you for your interest in Cape Cod 5's Educational Mini-Grant Program. The application period for the 2022–2023 school year has closed as of November 1, 2022.
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 1,000 mini-grants, totaling over half a million dollars, 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, 110 grants were awarded totaling approximately $50,000 to 134 teachers at 54 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 – starting this year – we are excited to announce that the top five most creative projects (as identified by our review committee) will receive $1,000!
The 2022 application period was open from September 28, 2022 until November 1, 2022. All applicants will be notified of a decision by December 1, 2022.
All applicants will be notified of a decision by the end of November. Grants will be distributed in early December 2022 by a check made payable to the school and mailed to your principal's attention.
