Cash for Classrooms: Teacher and School Enrichment Grants
Teacher and School Enrichment Grants
The Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) awards a limited number of Cash for Classrooms (formerly 100% Awareness) and School Enrichment Grants for special projects to teachers and staff in CUSD who want to develop new ideas to enrich the educational experience. The enrichment grants are awarded to staff who would not otherwise have sources of funding or who would have to use their own money to support their project. Any staff member in CUSD may apply for one enrichment grant from the 100% Awareness Teachers' Grant Fund.
