ICE MINI-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. 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?

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. Apply for an ICE mini-grant! Opens each year in August.

See the ICE Mini-Grant Guidelines for more information. If you have any questions about the ICE Scholarship Program, please feel free to contact the committee members at  ice_awards@iceberg.org.
