TEACHER STUDENT GRANTS
In keeping with our mission to enrich education, develop leadership, and better our community, the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation gives Student & Teacher Grant awards for programs meeting the critical needs of the schools we serve.
Grants are awarded based on the receipt of thoroughly completed applications and the thoughtful deliberation and recommendations of the South Baldwin Chamber Foundation’s Grants Review Committee.
More than $275,000 in Student & Teacher Grants has been awarded since 2005.
The South Baldwin Chamber Foundation endorses 21st Century Learning as a top priority for our schools and community. If you or your students seek funding for a current program or new idea addressing the development of the following 21st-century learning skills, you are encouraged to complete our grant application packet and return it to the Foundation via your school principal, whose signature is required. We also require student endorsement of teacher submissions and teacher endorsement of student submissions.
21st Century Learning is an integrated, interdisciplinary, project-based approach to developing the following skills:
Critical thinking and problem solving
Collaboration across networks and leading by influence
Agility and adaptability
Initiative and entrepreneurialism
Effective oral and written communication
Accessing and analyzing information
Curiosity and imagination
We also recognize the continued need for a back-to-basics approach and encourage grant applications for any program impacting the learning success of our students. Our overall goal is for every student to graduate prepared for college, career, and success in the global marketplace. Any program or project effectively addressing this goal will be considered for Student & Teacher Grant funding.
