Guidelines for GFWC-MFWC Challenge Grant

The GFWC- Mississippi Federation of Women’s Clubs has established Challenge Grants to be awarded to teachers in the State of Mississippi to benefit students with Learning Disabilities.  These grants will range from $50-$300.00 and will be given at the discretion of the Committee formed to administer the grants.  These grants must be used in the classroom, i.e., additional supplies, implementation of new programs, advanced technology, etc.  The primary criterion for these grants is need. These grants are not available to be used for continuing education for teachers; all money must be used to benefit students.  The grant recipient(s) will be invited to attend the State Convention in April to receive recognition if possible.  Grant applicants did not have to be a member of the GFWC-MFWC, but they must be sponsored by an active club member and/or club.
