Mini-grant Awards are made for Teachers          

The Morgan County Forum for Arts, Sciences and Technologies, Inc. (FAST) currently has a pilot project of mini-grants for teachers in the Morgan County Schools . Grant applications for 2017 awards are now under review. A special set of awards is set aside for newly appointed teachers who start in August and apply before the end of October (more details are here).

The intent of FAST is to support educational projects that enhance standard schoolroom learning in ways that also enhance our mission to advance informal education of individuals and families in Morgan County to apply arts, sciences, technologies and social studies in their daily lives. Thus, some preference will be given to projects that encourage students to introduce newly-learned concepts into the daily lives of their families and neighbors. We want to stimulate learners to teach and become teachers who learn, and we hope the projects provide another step forward in that regard. The following grants were made in 2016.
