Module 2 - Grants and Funding
Additional Resources for Grant Writing - March 20-27
- These are some additional resources related to grant writing.
The first is a budget worksheet that shows you the kinds of things you
would include in a budget table. Not everything would be included in
every worksheet, but these are many of the items you would find. For
our in-class grant-writing, we didn't have time, space, or information
to fill out something in this much detail, but for a real grant, you
would likely include something like this.
- Next is a program planning sheet that is a more detailed
version of the table you included in your in-class activity. The entire
table might or might not go into the grant application, but using this
as a planning tool can help you understand what you are asking for.
This includes some filled in parts as an example.
- Fill in the blank sample on the Program Planning Worksheet
for 1 or 2 objectives. If you have a specific grant in mind, fill it
out with that in mind. If you have not yet found any grants, just fill
it in as if you had a specific timeline from a grant. You can either
attach a Word document to your response, or better yet, copy and paste
the table from the document right into your response.
- Optionally, respond to others' posts as to how they might
improve this to make it more appealing to potential funders.
- Complete by March 27.

Information to Share - Technology Grants - Complete by March 27
Finding Grants - March 27
- Look for grants at the following resources
- In the following wiki, locate one grant opportunity for
educational technology in your school that no one else has added. Put a
link to the main page for the grant and a one or two sentence
description of the grant.
- This doesn't have to be a grant that you would actually find
appropriate for your school (e.g., you could add one that is specific
to interactive white boards even if you are not thinking about
purchasing interactive white boards. It just must be appropriate for
educational technology in schools in general and different from
anything anyone else has listed.
- Add your item by March 27.
Hint: this is easier if you go earlier.
