What is an Innovative Learning Grant?

The goal of The Success Foundation’s Innovative Learning Grant Program is to provide opportunities for classroom teachers to develop/advance projects and programs that incorporate Colorado State Academic Standards in innovative and creative ways. The overarching goal of the Innovative Learning Grant program is to increase student success and engagement in District Six schools. Projects/Programs must incorporate standards from at least two of the nine Colorado Academic Standard Areas: Visual and Performing Arts, Comprehensive Health and Physical Education, Computer Science, Mathematics, Reading, Writing and Communicating, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.

Award Amount

Generally, Innovative learning Grants are awarded in amounts up to $2,500. Should a project/program require funding in excess of $2,500, applicants will be required to submit a supplemental narrative and budget detailing why the additional funds are being requested and how these monies would be used. PLEASE NOTE: Any funding request that exceeds $2,500 would be considered when possible, but all Innovative Learning Grant applications should have a base budget that does not exceed $2,500.
