Fund for Teachers to hold sessions on obtaining grants

The Fund for Teachers will hold three informational sessions to help teachers learn about applying for the organization’s professional development grants.

The Fund for Teachers partners with the Tulsa Community Foundation to provide direct grants to teachers for summer professional development opportunities of their own design. Last year, more than 80 area teachers received grants.

Fund for Teachers grants are open to all Oklahoma teachers who have at least three years’ teaching experience, are full-time school employees and spend at least 50 percent of their time in a classroom setting.
