EFG Teacher Grants

Each year teachers are invited to submit proposals for teacher grants that are consistent with the mission of the Education Foundation of Greenville (EFG) and the beliefs and mission of Greenville Public Schools. Applications are considered for individual, team, and interdisciplinary projects, for specific subjects, grade level or building projects.

Trustees gratefully acknowledge the collaboration with the Greenville Area Community Foundation (GACF). The two foundations coordinate their grant cycles to prevent duplication and overlap of grant awards.

For more information about the grants, or download applications, please visit the GACF homepage
