Business Grants for Teachers
CONCORD, NH (June 2022) - Each year, the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce awards grants to local teachers who have developed innovative programs in Capital Region schools. The Chamber is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year.
Teachers who apply must demonstrate how their projects fit a specific educational need, are unique to their respective schools and are not supported by the school system’s annual budget. These grants allow local students to delve into unique projects, learn new skills and pursue subjects that are not included in standard curriculum.
In 2021-2022, these grant-funded projects focused on science, engineering, history, writing and arts. At Concord High School, the “We are America” literary project let students dive into history and personal storytelling. At Bow High School, students collected data on a local salamander population. At Bow Memorial School, a display area was created for student artworks and a therapeutic sensory space was built for students with autism and other developmental and cognitive challenges. At Abbot-Downing School, students put engineering and geometry skills to use with 3D printers.
Teachers may learn more and apply by Friday, July 1 at concordnhchamber.com/business-grants-for-teachers. The Chamber’s Business and Education initiative has awarded over $161,000 in grants to local educators. Funding for this initiative is provided by the Funds for Education Golf Tournament, which will be held on Wednesday, August 3 at Beaver Meadow Golf Course.
