PEF Teacher Grants
The Portland Education Foundation awards grants to Portland Public School Teachers to support effective education and projects that encourage academic innovation, creativity and excellence.

Funds may be used for materials, transportation, visiting experts, or other resources that will directly impact students’ educational experience. Funds may not be used for professional development.

Grants may be used for all subject areas.

Applicants are encouraged to find additional sources of funding for projects when/where possible; this grant might, for example, add to funds already procured from parents, a PTA/PTO, or another grant.
