OCC GATE Teacher Grant

Orange County Council for Gifted & Talented Education (OCC GATE) is pleased to announce OCC GATE Classroom Grants. This grant will facilitate a project designed to enhance GATE instruction in the classroom and will be awarded for a project that other funds do not or cannot finance. The objective of the grant is to provide funding for a project that would otherwise not be possible. Grants will be awarded October 22, 2016 at the OCC GATE Conference. We especially enjoy funding proposals that involve unique experiences for gifted students.

On line submissions must be received by Monday, October 3, 2016 by 3:00 p.m. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

The application is available here.
