The Leyden Credit Union
Teacher Grant Program has been established to provide grants
up to $500 to aid in the development of effective teaching
strategies and projects. Grants will be awarded to teachers
who encourage and support experiential learning, enhance
student understanding and increase student achievement.
Proposed projects must be
submitted by an eligible educator* and may involve museum or
field trips, environmental or science projects, artistic or
cultural experiences, civics or community service projects,
and the creation of a final student product that promotes
student learning. These grants are meant as a supplement to
general operating funds, not as a substitute.
