General Mini-Grant

The LTHS Foundation awards mini-grants to faculty members based on available funds. The Foundation Board will assess each proposal based on its merit. Funds are not intended to purchase equipment and supplies typically provided by the school budget. Requests for food and/or meals will not be considered. Special attention will be granted to projects that traverse the curriculum or benefit a large number of students.

Examples of fundable projects:
• guest speakers
• classroom software
• projects that facilitate adding innovative teaching techniques
• units that fall outside the general curriculum

For consideration by the Board, applications must be completed in full and meet the criteria below. Incomplete/vague applications could delay consideration and/or approval.

Projects must directly affect the academic progress of our students or be aimed at students’ health and well-being.

Proposals must be submitted in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to event or purchase.

Projects must have the written approval of the appropriate department chair.

If awarded a mini-grant, the recipient(s) is/(are) required to:

  1. Submit paperwork for processing or reimbursement of funds within thirty (30) days from the date of notification of approval
  2. Provide a brief written report upon completion of each project, i.e. describe results/merits of student performance as a result of mini-grant funding, indicate if additional funding was provided by other entities, and include comments by student beneficiaries.
