The objective of the mini-grant program is to encourage educational excellence through the funding of creative teaching and learning projects.

Oscoda Education Opportunity Foundation is planning on offering Mini-Grants for the 2020-2021 school year.  However, due to COVID-19 we are postponing the Fall Mini-Grant.  Our plan is to offer it later in the semester once the school year is more settled.  

  1. Mini-Grants are available to ANY staff member--both Certified and Non-Certified.

  2. Grant awards will be limited to no more than $1,000.

  3. A total of $1,500 are available per semester for Mini-Grants.

  4. All items purchased with mini-grant funds become the property of Oscoda Area      Schools.  Applicants are encouraged to purchase from and use as many local resources as possible.

  5. Individual staff may apply each year.

  6. Applicants should follow the Oscoda Area School District procedures in requesting expenditures or reimbursements from their grant fund.

  7. Mini-Grant recipients are required to provide a brief, written report (including photos, if applicable, to the organization regarding the outcome of their project during teh school year in which the grant was awarded.

  8. In the application process, emphasis will be placed on the creativity of the proposed project and number of students impacted.

  9. Types of requests NOT funded:  Requests for funds after an event has taken place.


The grant must have at least one major goal which is aligned to the Core Content or Building/District School Improvement Plan.  Completeness of the budget information is important.  The grant application is attached and no more than one additional page may be added.


All grants are to emailed to the Foundation by the deadlines.  Grants will be awarded in August on the first staff work day and than on Records Day in January.
