A Quick Way to Search for Grants for Your School

Earlier today I responded to a reader's questions about applying for grants. One of the questions was about how to find grant opportunities. Grant Wrangler was the first resource that came to mind when I read the question.

Grant Wrangler is a free service that lists grant opportunities for teachers, school administrators, and students. Grant Wrangler also lists some contest opportunities. You can search Grant Wrangler by content area, grade level, and application deadline.

If you're looking for funding sources for a classroom project or a school-wide initiative, take a look at what Grant Wrangler has listed.

Win Technology Prizes for Your School

Full disclosure: the sponsor of this contest is an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Even if they weren't an advertiser there is still a good chance that I'd mention this contest.

The Worth Ave Group is currently sponsoring a contest through which schools in the United States can win technology prizes worth up to $25,000. Here's how it works: a teacher is nominated by a community member and is then placed on the contest's list of eligible nominees. The teacher who receives the most votes will win a $25,000 technology prize package for his or her school. The contest will also award smaller prizes to five runners-up. Voters will also be entered into a random drawing for iPads. The voting is open now through the end of March, 2012. You can read the full contest rules here (link is to a PDF).
