We understand the important role that you play in helping students attend educational events. It would't be possible to provide opportunities for students without you. The Michigan Youth Education fund is here to support you and provide resources to make your job as an educator and advisor straightforward.
How should I distribute grant funding to students?
The goal of the educational opportunity grant program is to reduce the overall cost burden on students attending educational events and opportunities. Once you receive a favorable grant determination, your funding will be distributed directly to your educational institution. The two most common methods of distributing grant funds are as follows:
- Apply the total award amount toward the total cost of the trip and divide the remaining costs evenly among students.
- Use the total award amount to cover the costs of students trips whom were previously unable to attend due to the financial burden.
What are the post-event reporting REQUIREMENTS
Once your educational event has concluded, you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out regarding the impact of the educational opportunity grant. This allows us to measure our organizations impact and better serve our community. Grant funding is contingent upon the completion of this survey.
What do I need to complete the grant APPLICATION?
To compete the grant application, you will need your contact information, educational institution information (including NCES ID number), student group information, event information, and responses to our grant selection questions.
How long does it take to complete the grant application?
The grant application form takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete.
