Mini-Grants

Graduates of our summer seminars are eligible to apply for mini-grants of up to $1,000 for projects in their classrooms, their schools, and their communities.

Grants have been awarded to support a wide variety of classroom work, visits by Holocaust survivors, field trips to Holocaust centers and other relevant sites, resources for classrooms and school libraries, and extended programming and community outreach that bring Holocaust and social justice education to wider audiences. Grant funds may not be used for teachers’ travel to conferences or to purchase electronic equipment. While teachers may continue to apply for mini-grants, individual projects may receive only one grant per year for no more than three years.

Here we proudly feature the work of teachers under the auspices of this program.
