 About the Innovation Grants

innovation-grants-logo.jpg​Innovation Grants provide an opportunity for principals and teachers to accelerate and advance learning in the classroom.  These grants are awarded to support an innovative vision of education within our Catholic schools.

Principals or teachers can apply for an Innovation Grant up to $10,000.  These grants should enhance the current curriculum and focus on innovative instructional techniques.  Grants are available for Pre-K to grade 12.  This initiative is designed to provide funds for the most unique, educational and developmental concepts in our Diocese.  As a result, requests for technology (iPads, computers, etc.) will not be accepted.
