Funding the Future grants are available to K-12 teachers whose schools are located within Continental Resources’ operating areas in Oklahoma, North Dakota, South Dakota or Montana. Since 2013, this program has benefitted dozens of schools in the communities where we live and work.
This grant is meant to augment existing programs or help create new ones that foster learning in key areas of reading, science, math, technology or engineering. Grants will not be awarded for travel or equipment (laptops, Chromebooks or iPads).
Past recipients have used Funding the Future grants on state-of-the-art science labs, robotics kits, computer labs, school gardens and math and reading skills programs. Such programs nurture our students with the educational resources they need to grow into the future leaders of our nation.
Please be as detailed as possible in describing your proposed grant program in your application to ensure our review committee gets a clear picture of what you intend to do for your students. Applications must be completed by September 30.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to schools in the name of the applying teacher or administrator, so any equipment or materials purchased with grant funds will remain property of the school district. Grant recipients will be notified in October.
If you have any further questions about this grant program, please contact Lesley Martin at Lesley.Martin@clr.com.
