The Portland Education Foundation (PEF) is excited to announce the opening of its 2016-2017 Teacher Grants application period. The application period runs from Monday, Aug. 1, through Monday, Oct. 3.

The online application will be posted by 5 p.m. on Aug. 1. Portland Public Schools teachers can access the online application form and guidelines by clicking here

Applicants to the PEF Teacher Grants Program may apply for funding of up to $1,000 toward innovative school and classroom-based efforts to enhance learning experiences for students in the Portland Public Schools.

​As an example, one grant given during the 2015-2016 school year enabled East End Community School to buy a 3D printer for students to use in a new Makerspace the school opened in its library. A makerspace is a DIY space where students gather to create, invent, and learn.

All applications for grants will be due by the end of the day (11:59 p.m.) on Monday, Oct. 3.

Please note that the email address for the program has changed. All correspondence regarding the Teacher Grants Program should be sent to: [email protected]

PEF is an independent nonprofit organization committed to raising philanthropic support to enhance education in the Portland Public schools. PEF extends its thanks and appreciation to PPS teachers for all that they do for Portland’s students.
