The Society of Aviation & Flight Educators is accepting applications for its 2017 K-12 Classroom Teacher Grant program.
Grants of up to $250 will be awarded to K-12 classroom teachers to incorporate aviation-themed lessons into their regular curriculum. In 2018, four SAFE grants will be awarded: two for teachers in Grades K-7 and two for teachers in Grades 8-12.
An individual teacher or a group of teachers from the same school may apply for a grant to support the design of an aviation-themed classroom unit or complete an aviation-themed project. For example, a SAFE grant could be used to pay for a bus and admission fees for students to visit an aviation museum, go on a field trip to the local airport, buy materials to build a balsa wood glider or model rocket, or fund another type of project with an aviation or aerospace theme.
Any credentialed teacher in a public, private, or charter school may apply for a grant. Local STEM coordinators and homeschooling cooperatives may also apply for a grant.
Grants must be used within a year of the award.
