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.

1. Create a login

Registration is open between August and March 1. Once you are registered, you may log in and work on your applications at any time.

2. Start Working on Your Application

Visit your Dashboard and click on “New Application” to get started. Fill out each section of the application. Once the application is completed and saved with all of the required information, you will be able to send the application to your Principal for approval. You may also save your unfinished application and return later to finish it.

In the description of your grant application, please do not include the teacher name, school name, or district name.

3. Principal Approval

When you send your application to your principal, they will receive an email from us containing a link to review the application. If they approve the application, it will be sent for review by the Idaho CapEd Foundation.

It may be a good idea to get in touch with your Principal in advance, so they will be looking for the email. Following up may also be a good idea. You will be notified via email when your Principal takes action on your application.

Principals receive lots of email. If they haven’t responded to your grant request yet, they may need to be reminded. Also, ask them to add “grants@capedfoundation.org” and “grants@caped.com” to their spam filter’s “white list”. It may be possible that the email just didn’t make it to their inbox. You can easily resend the email to them via the “All Applications” page.

Your application is marked as received on the date your principal approves it, regardless of when you created it or sent it to them.

4. Resubmitting Grant Requests

You can easily re-submit your applications from your Dashboard. Locate the application you want to duplicate and select “Duplicate”. Then, review the application for any changes and resubmit it to your principal. It is possible that the application has changed since your last visit. So be sure to look it over again.
