In light of COVID-19 and remote instruction/learning, this year’s NBEF Innovative Teacher Grants Program is inviting New Brunswick Public School District teachers and staff to apply for grants (ranging up to $1,000.00) to implement virtual projects and activities and/or to acquire resources that are needed to enhance or supplement their existing virtual lessons, projects and activities for students (including items that grant recipients can arrange for students to access/use at home).
NBEF is pleased to partner with Johnson & Johnson in this special COVID Relief related project that welcomes proposals from New Brunswick Public Schools K-12 and all curriculum areas. The link to the online applications will soon be circulated throughout the School District from the Office of the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and the deadline for teachers and staff to submit the applications (their grant proposals) is Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
Since 2011, NBEF has funded over 150 projects and activities (both inside and outside classrooms) through its Innovative Teacher Grants Program. This initiative has impacted tens of thousands of students (Kindergarten thru Grade Twelve) in areas such as Reading & Literacy, STEM, Fine, Visual and Performing Arts, and many other disciplines.
