Reminder! Applications are now open for Bright Minds Foundation classroom grants for HCPSS teachers and school-based staff interested in delivering educational projects focused on improving student achievement, engagement, and well-being during the 2024-2025 school year. Classroom grants will fund innovative instructional projects that serve to support student success, enrich teaching practices, strengthen school communities, and pilot important classroom projects. Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging from $500-$2,000 for projects and programs to be completed during the 2024-2025 school year.

All project ideas are welcome as Bright Minds seeks to support a diverse mix of projects across the school system. A special partnership this year with Blossoms of Hope will provide additional support for projects focused on student mental health and well-being.
