Literacy Grants

LEARNING IS IN FULL BLOOM IN MADISON CLASSROOMS

One of MKEF's most anticipated programs is the annual distribution of 18 $500 grants to teachers who bring innovative approaches to literacy into the classroom.

These grants help make possible creative classroom activities that promote student-centered learning and enhance education. Since the first round of grants were distributed in 2009, the foundation has awarded more than $70,000 in literacy grants to Madison County teachers. 

Madison County teachers have not only taken advantage of this opportunity for reading and language arts, but they have also created programs that enhanced the curriculum in mathematics, science and history. 

"Educators like these are what makes our school district one of the best in the state.”— MKEF President Lisa Caudill

A team of educators and professionals select the recipients after applications are completed. The deadline to file an application for a  Mike's Kids Literacy Grant is Oct. 31. For more information, contact Lisa Caudill, MKEF president, at president@mkef.org.
