“Getting this Grant was a very rewarding and valuable experience, not only for me as an educator, but also for my students since I could show them that we can overcome all issues in our life when we have the enthusiasm to be better.”
— Pamela Leiva, Halifax County
“NCFPSC believes in the future and potential of the scholars in my classroom. On behalf of the kids that were trusted under my care and guidance, thank you for supporting kids and teachers in their quest for lifelong learning.”
— Carlos Valencia, Forsyth County
“Fluency is an important goal in learning to read and comprehend effectively. With the purchase of voice recorders my students were able to increase their fluency and had a whole lot more fun this school year!”
— Holly Price, Johnston County
“We are thankful for these grant funds because there are so many opportunities for hands-on, authentic learning yet the funding is not always available.”
— Wendy Neisler, Mecklenburg County
“Our trip to Atlanta was one of the best school trips I have ever attended. With the money from the grant we were able to take all the students in our National Honors Society for Dance Arts!"

The North Carolina Foundation for Public School Children awards annually a limited number of Learning and Literacy Grants, up to $1,000 each, to North Carolina public schools and educators that serve K-12 students. 

Student Learning grants are for projects that enhance or increase student learning. 

Named in honor of former North Carolina Governor James B. Hunt, Jr., any public school administrator, educator, or guidance counselor is eligible to apply for a grant for his/her school or district. 

Preference is given to low-wealth school districts as defined by the State Department of Public Instruction and/or located in a Tier 1 county. 

A project evaluation, submitted through the Foundation website, is to be submitted to the NCFPSC office as soon as possible after the completion of the project. No future grant applications will be considered unless all information has been received from previous grants. 

Clothing/Shirts: Grant funds may not be used for clothing. Only 10% of the funds requested may be used for shirts, when applicable.

Please be prepared to share photos and a video from your project to submit with your evaluation.
