Teacher Grant Program

We realize that financial resources are stretched thin in classrooms across Idaho. Our grant program helps teachers supplement instruction and facilitate student learning.

The Foundation Helps Fill The Gap

Each month during the school year (Sept-Mar), we award grants to Idaho teachers and educators. These grants help pay for programs, materials, or special projects for the students in their classrooms.

Our Selection Committee awards grants, up to $750 each, to teachers and educators based on funds available and in amounts as determined by our Board of Directors.

How to Apply

Teachers are eligible if teaching Pre-K through 12th grade in the State of Idaho at an accredited school. Applications are accepted from August through March 1.

Building the Foundation

In 2008 CapEd Credit Union started a teacher grant program. This program gave monthly grants to teachers and educators.

Teachers seeking a grant would apply to the Credit Union and provide information including the proposed use of the grant money, how many students are impacted, how the request fits in the current school district curriculum, and the amount of the grant requested.

Each month a selection committee of three or four former teachers and education administrators would review the applications and recommend recipients to CapEd.

In 2012, the Idaho CapEd Foundation was formed. It assumed ownership of the Teacher Grant Program. The program retains its original purpose of awarding grants to Idaho teachers and educators to be used for specific educational projects or programs for their students.
