Since 1990, 596 educational grants totaling over $1.4 million have been awarded through the Thiems Grant Program. Teachers, students, administrators, parents or community members in District 205 are eligible to apply. Requested programs, projects, or instructional resources should enhance the educational experience of students, be clearly in support of and help to deliver relevant curriculum, and ideally demonstrate creativity and innovation.

Applications that contain technology or media components must include a technology review form. Please note the procedure and additional deadlines that are outlined in the application guidelines. All applications are due February 8, 2017 and recipients will be announced in the spring.
