The 2021 Spring Mini-Grant Application deadline is Tuesday, March 23, 2021. Applications should be in the Community Relations/Education Foundation Office at the Administration Building no later than 4:30 PM on the due date.



Dear Pasadena ISD Educators,
The 2021 Mini-Grant Season has just begun and I invite you to apply for a mini-grant to help make your classroom more innovative and engaging for 21st-century learners. The application, instructions, rules, guidelines, and other related documents can be found on this website.

New this year, we're offering you two ways to apply. You can now do so ONLINE or the traditional method, just like in past years. If you choose to apply online, you'd be happy to know that you will not be required to mail or hand-deliver original copies of your application to our office. If you apply the traditional way, you will have to email your Cover Letter and Application to and then you'll still have to mail or deliver the original copies before the deadline, which is 4:30 PM on Tuesday - March 23rd, 2021.

We will host a virtual workshop on "How to Write a Mini-Grant" on Wednesday, March 3rd from 3:45 pm to 4:25 pm. More information will be sent to PISD employees via email. Although not mandatory, it is very helpful and highly encouraged to attend at least once. This is a foundation-sponsored event and not considered staff development, therefore you do not have to register on Eduphoria.

The Education Foundation awards mini-grants once a year to Pasadena ISD educators for campus or classroom projects to enhance student success. Applications are scored by readers and then screened by a selection committee made up of foundation board members. Applications are accepted for up to $5000.00. I hope you will apply and I wish you good luck!
