Excellence in Education Grants for Teachers
The IRTA Foundation continues to work toward the future by offering $36,500 in grant money to educators.
How the Program Works
Being an educator, do you often think of this phrase - Extra Funds Needed - when it comes to planning special projects for your students? Due to recent state budget cuts, you may be finding that additional revenue sources are no longer available for such unique activities.
The Illinois Retired Teachers Association (IRTA) Foundation is making $36,500 in grant money available statewide in Illinois. This special grant will provide additional funds to public school educators (Pre-K through 12) so that their students will have the means to participate in special projects.
