Teacher Grants

Quality education depends on consistent financial investment. Starkville Foundation for Public Education Grants allow teachers and schools to reach beyond the available district, state and federal funding. Educators have been able to purchase new equipment, curriculum enrichment materials and technology that have inspired and challenged our students.

Grants are awarded in the spring and are for programs and projects to be implemented the following school year. All educators in the Starkville Oktibbeha Consolidated School District are eligible to apply for 2019-2020 SFPE Teacher Grants.

Tips for Competitive Grant Applications

  • bring new and innovative programming to the district
