Mini-Grant Awards for Teachers          

In 2016, the Morgan County Forum for Arts, Sciences and Technologies, Inc. (FAST) began a program of mini-grants for Morgan County teachers. Awards gave priority to projects that enable and empower students to share new knowledge in voluntary “show-and-tell” with their families and friends.

FAST dissolved in 2020, and the program shifted to the Seely Foundation Paradox Fund. Applications for 2021 mini-grants must be submitted by October 7 for awards to be made by November, 2021. Click the following link for the grant application form in editable Microsoft Word format.

The mini-grant program supports teachers who create meaningful learning experiences beyond standard classroom rote memorization and encourage students to apply their newly learned words and concepts in conversations outside the classroom. 

Reports of projects created by Morgan County teachers are posted to show the Morgan County community diverse ideas that students learned.
