COLLINSVILLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: TorHoerman Law Announces $2,000 Teacher Support Grant
Collinsville Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on July 6.
TorHoerman Law is excited to announce the establishment of the $2,000 Teacher Support Grant. The grant is designed to help teachers with the responsibility of buying supplies and/or resources for their students.
“Teachers are often buying supplies for their students out of their own paychecks, and while it is incredibly admirable, it is a costly effort,” Eric Terry, Attorney at TorHoerman Law said. “We created this grant to help in those efforts.”
In order to apply, teachers must answer the following question:
As an educator, how could you innovatively spend a $2,000 grant to improve your students’ educational experience?
In addition to answering the question, applicants must fill out a form with their name, email, phone number, school of employment, and grade taught and upload a document detailing the item(s) requested, the cost of those item(s), and where those item(s) could be purchased.
“With this grant, we’re hoping to make a difference in the life of one area teacher,” Terry said. “The question was left open-ended intentionally because we realize that depending on the grade, different supplies or resources are needed. When answering the question, each applicant is able to cater their response based on a specific need.”
The grant is available to all teachers in St. Clair and Madison counties.
Applications are now being accepted. The deadline to apply is August 1, 2018. A winner will be chosen and announced in September 2018.
