It’s been a year now since I have changed my profession… again. I am now a trainee language instructor in a leading education institutes. Of course, in order for me to go ahead full time, I would need to complete additional courses and training.

A few have told me about federal grants for teachers that the government sets aside but I wonder if I am really eligible for it. I’m not sure what I need to do nor am I aware of how this process works. All I know is that I need to get attended those courses and I need money now.

During the quest of gathering this information, I realized that grants for teachers were not that hard to obtain. I mean, if you have the right qualifications (Check), the right motivation (Check) and a liable cause (Check), the government would consider offering you a pell grant.

Then what was holding me back? Why this hesitation? Well, it’s the fact that I always wanted to be a sailor! There goes my grant.

But here’s the most interesting thing – now you can, with grants for teachers, you can have access to some truly interesting training material, and make something special out of yourself, and furthermore out of your class.

Classroom achievements

All teachers do the same things during their classes – or most of them anyway. I bet at this point you want to make something truly special, but you can’t because that involves funds and training you do not have. Well, at this point, in order to build these classroom achievements you can go for one of the many grants for teachers that insure the necessary funding for precisely those plans.

Extra Resources

More often nowadays, teachers have to deal with operating without enough resources – in the digital era, One can make a class truly interesting and exceedingly interactive using the proper digital tools. However, when the school does not agree with your vision on your class, what can you do? Well, at this point, a grant for teachers might be exactly what you’re looking for. Not only that you can buy all those amazing tools for your class, but you will also make your students a lot more interested in your course since everyone wants to participate in a 21st century course (compared to scribbling in a notepad, and listening to the teacher talk during the entire course).

Of course, these are only some of the advantages available if you want to go for a teacher’s grant. What you need to understand however is that you have to have a solid case. Whenever and wherever you may be opting for such a grant, your application has to be solid – you have to be in charge of whatever you want to do, and know your plan in and out. Some of the specific rules involve:

  1. You must be currently teaching in order to receive a teacher grant (obviously!).
  2. Copyright-free content. In other words, you cannot opt for these grants if your project has to deal with copyright issues.
  3. The purpose of the grant has to be original (not necessarily unheard of, it’s just that your project has to be your own, and not borrowed, stolen or something similar).
  4. It all has to be part of a greater assignment (or has to end with one).

All in all, this sounds a bit like a business-plan, but let’s be frank here – receiving money for education, even in the case of a teacher grant, is a bit of a business, and you have to lay your expectations and commitment as a base for your offer if you want people to consider you for their grant.

Good luck!
