Please read the ICE Mini-Grant Guidelines
ICE is very pleased to announce a new mini-grant program available to all ICE members across Illinois. Are you looking for a way to make your school or classroom Maker Space a reality, seeking a few more devices to facilitate an engaging and exciting classroom project, or wanting to try a cutting-edge innovation that is so new you missed your school's budget cycle? Apply for an ICE mini-grant!
ICE is the leader in supporting and promoting innovative education for all. With this mission in mind, the ICE Governing Board has budgeted funds to cover multiple grants. The purpose of the ICE Mini-Grant Program is to provide ICE members throughout the state with funding for educational technology projects that showcase innovation and creativity and directly benefit students in PreK-12 classrooms.
We hope to award multiple grants, so the odds are good and the application is short and to the point. We ask you to tell us what you want to do, how it is innovative for your school, what it will cost to implement, how many students will be impacted and require some other necessary information, but that's about it. Your project must meet our guidelines and demonstrate innovation and the potential to benefit students. All submissions will be reviewed by multiple readers based on criteria listed in our guidelines document, linked below.
