Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Mini-Grants
DEADLINE: March 31, 2017

The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, which fosters children’s love of reading and creative expression in our diverse culture, celebrates the 29th year of its Mini-Grant program with a call for proposals. Approximately 60 grants of $500 each will be awarded to qualifying teachers and librarians at public schools and libraries across the United States. Decisions will be emailed to all applicants by early May.

“For almost 30 years it has been our joy to award Mini-Grants to support teachers and librarians who reach beyond the standard curriculum—creating programs that inspire and encourage students in a creative and cooperative context,” says Deborah Pope, Executive Director of the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation. “It is essential that educators have resources to create these special programs, and this year we’ve revamped our application to make it even easier for them to apply for funding.”
Since 1987, the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation has provided nearly $880,000 in support of Mini-Grant programs spanning the 50 states and the U.S. Commonwealth.

Recent EJK Mini-Grants Help Latino Students Embrace Their Heritage and Share Their Culture in Frankfort, Indiana, and Students in Auburn, Maine, have “Fun with French.” Other creative programs funded in the past have included:
