HOW TO APPLY
Anyone working at an Oakland public school or program (OUSD- or charter-managed) is eligible to apply: teachers, principals, Community School Managers, afterschool providers, librarians, anyone!
The project must be fully funded by the A to Z Fund mini-grant; an A to Z grant can not fund part of a larger project.
Grant funds may not be used to pay teachers or substitutes, or for general supplies or technology.
Winter/Spring grants must support projects taking place between March – August.
Multiple applications can be submitted from the same school. We will award at most 3 grants per cycle per school.
An individual can only receive ONE A to Z award per year. If your application was awarded in Fall 2019, please do not reapply for a grant until next Fall. If you participated in a professional development activity funded by an A to Z grant, you are allowed to apply for a General A to Z grant.
YOU DREAM IT, WE’LL HELP YOU DO IT
Apply for an A to Z mini-grant and you could receive $250 – $1,500 for a general school project, or $1500 – $5,000 to support individual or group teacher professional development.
