CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - WGU Missouri has announced the return of its “Fund My Classroom” initiative, pledging up to $125,000 in grant money for K-12 teachers who need help funding their innovative classroom projects.

Teachers can submit proposed projects online for the opportunity to receive full or partial funding.

Applications are being accepted through April 18, and selected classroom projects will be announced during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 3-7.

K-12 educators can request funding for any type of innovative classroom project they believe would provide an enriching classroom experience for their students – from books, supplies and equipment or technology to classroom experiences and field trips.

To be considered, proposed projects must include a description, detailing how much funding is needed and how the proposed project will benefit students.

Both public and private school teachers are encouraged to apply.

This is the third consecutive year WGU Missouri is making the “Fund My Classroom” initiative available for teachers in Missouri.

Anyone interested in nominating themselves, colleagues, family or friends can fill out the short application.

Nominees must reside in Missouri, Illinois or Kansas.
