$500 grants now available to Leander ISD educators


The Leander Educational Excellence Foundation spring grant application period is now open. The deadline for Leander ISD teachers to apply for an Innovative Teaching Grant is Dec. 2, according to LEEF Executive Director Kristen Huguley.

Grants are available to LISD employees “in good standing,” according to the LEEF website. Proposals should explain how the funding would improve professional development and/or help to implement new programs.

The Grant Review Committee will determine whether each applicant will receive full, partial or no grant funding. The maximum grant payout is $500, according to LEEF’s website.

Teachers may apply online and view the complete list of program rules at www.leeftx.org/innovative-grant. Grant winners will be announced Feb. 20, according to Huguley.

According to its website, LEEF awards three cycles of grants annually: fall innovative grants, spring innovative grants and collaborative grants during Convocation. Most recently, LEEF awarded $13,836 in fall grants on Sept. 26. For more information, call Colleen Brighton at 512-570-0027.
