Funds for Mentor/Mentee Pair or Program 
Have you taken a new teacher under your wing? Are you spearheading a new educator mentor initiative? We’d love to support your efforts! This grant can be applied to a project taken on by a specific mentor/mentee pair, or may be used to defray the costs of a broader mentorship program effort being undertaken by a school, district or association. Examples of projects could include but are not limited to: any costs directly caused by a new mentorship program, materials/registration fees for professional development around mentorship, costs incurred by a co-presentation where an experienced mentor co-presents with an emerging education thought-leader (conference registration fees, etc).
