Innovation Fund Grant Opportunities

Innovation Fund Tiny Grants

The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement will be conducting the next review of Tiny Grant applications in May.  All applicants that submit their application by May 1 will be notified of their status by late-May.  


What is a Tiny Grant?

Tiny Grants provide traditional public schools, charter schools, and school districts between $1,000 and $7,000 to implement an innovative project that deeply engages students. An innovative project solves an existing problem in an inventive way and has the potential to have a large and lasting impact on the academic environment. 

Tiny Grant-funded programs or projects must align with one of the following priority areas:

  • Applied Learning with a Focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education;
  • Development and Replication of Blended Learning School Models; or
  • Birth to Age Eight Language and Literacy Development.
