grant opportunities

NCFPSC has awarded our maximum number of James B. Hunt Professional Development Grants for this cycle. A new grant cycle will begin on September 1, 2018.

Governor James B. Hunt Grants Professional Development Grants

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

Professional Development grants are to help finance professional development opportunities for educators.

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 oneself, for another public school personnel within their own district or school, or for their 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, and receipts must be sent 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. Any grant funds for which a receipt is not supported must be refunded to NCFPSC by June 30. 

Grant Application Deadline: Rolling schedule from August 30 – March 30. 

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

  • Grant funds may not be used for clothing. Only 10% of the funds requested may be used for shirts, if applicable.
