Classroom grants for teachers

Each year, SRP provides more than $200,000 in direct funding to teachers. Our goal is to help them bring innovative projects into their classrooms through the Classroom Connections grant program

“We are dedicated to our education programs and to providing Arizona teachers with the tools they need to bring STEM learning back to their K–12 classrooms.” 

Chelsey Falk, Community Activation Lead, SRP 

In total, SRP contributes more than $1.4 million to education initiatives annually. This includes SRP Touchdowns for Teachers™, teacher grants and funding through partnerships throughout the state. 

2-4-6-8, let us help you innovate!

Classroom grants have been used in a variety of ways, from everyday necessities to out-of-this-world projects. 

In past years, we have seen educators use the funding to purchase advanced technology, including VR kits that allow students to virtually visit real-life locations such as the International Space Station and ancient Rome. Other teachers have purchased 3D printers, STEM kits and programming robotics kits.

Tips for winning a grant:

  • Funding for field trips will not be considered.  
  • Focus on materials students will use to enhance their learning.  
  • The more students positively impacted by using the materials, the more likely you are to have your application selected for funding. 
  • The longer the materials are used, the more likely you are to be chosen. 

Access free resources for teachers

There are a select amount of grants given, but SRP’s free workshops for professional development are open to any K–12 educators in SRP’s service and impact areas. In addition to these grants, SRP also offers a variety of professional development and resources at no cost for teachers.
