OCC GATE Classroom 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 (grants are up to $1,000 each). We especially enjoy funding proposals that involve unique experiences for gifted students.

Important dates:

  • Online submissions must be received by Tuesday, October 1, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

  • Grant recipients will be notified by email on Monday, October 28, 2019.

  • Grants will be awarded November 16, 2019 at the OCC GATE Conference.

Grant recipients will be required to send a brief article about their project and a few pictures that we will share with our OCC GATE Executive Board and highlight at the 2020 OCC GATE Conference. This article should be sent within 2 months of completion of your project and/or by August 30, 2020. 

Application: OCC GATE Grant.
