Tiny Grant Program

Tiny Grants provide traditional public schools, charter schools, and school districts between $1,000 and $7,000 to implement innovative projects that deeply engage 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. 

GOSA will be conducting the next review of Tiny Grant applications in January.  All applicants that submit their application by January 15, 2019 will be notified of their status by mid-February.
