CANE Educational Programs Discretionary Grants   Recently updated !

Do you have an idea for a student project or personal professional development and your school can’t support it? Consider asking CANE for support. The CANE Educational Programs Discretionary Grants combine the Discretionary Grants and the Educational Programs grants we have offered for some years are now available with one application and on a rolling basis, so you can obtain the funds you need right away. This money is available to you as part of what CANE offers as part of your membership.

In the past, funds have been used by individuals as well as by state and local classical organizations to support such events as annual meetings, workshops, and museum visits. Applicants for funds to support educational programs should include the following information:

·         Name and contact information

·         A brief description of your organization (if applicable)

·         A statement indicating the educational objectives or desired outcomes of the program or event, a description of the intended audience, and the desired amount.

Applications for grants are accepted throughout the year on a rolling basis. A majority of grants support events and programs from $200-250 (although grants of up to $500 will be considered).

To apply, please contact the CANE Coordinator of Educational Programs

(eduprograms@caneweb.org).

Teachers at all levels from elementary school through college and university are encouraged to apply.
