Ecolab Teacher Grants Program - Application and Directions

  • The Ecolab Teacher Grants Program (ETGP) supports projects that directly impact students and align with the SPPS Achieves strategic plan.

    The process is competitive; applications that directly connect the project with a curriculum and measurable outcome tend to score higher in the review process.

    Educators of color and first-time applicants are encouraged to apply.

    How Do I Apply?

    The 2023 Ecolab Checklist is your starting point. This one-page interactive tool includes links to all required forms and other tools that have been designed to make this process easier.  You should prepare all your application information in advance, as the bulk of it will be submitted through a Google Form.  A detailed budget is the only separate document you will need to submit.

    If video instructions are a good fit for you, use the tutorials further below to help with all aspects of the application process.  Check the Applicant Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) if you have questions.  Contact us if you don't find the answers to your questions, if you need help strengthening your application, or to arrange a one-on-one meeting to assist with your proposal.

    See the expandable sections below for basic program information.
