2024 Teacher Grant Applications NOW OPEN!


Since 2013, the Frenship Foundation has awarded more than $300,000 in teacher grants. These grants help fund materials, technology, supplies, and innovative projects that engage students and spark a passion for learning.

A Frenship Foundation Teacher Grant Committee will review and score the redacted grants during the summer, and grant recipients will be announced in August – September of 2024.
