For Immediate Release
Murfreesboro, Tennessee -- September 10, 2019 -- BEP Nissan Teacher Minigrant Award applications are now available for teachers who are working in the Murfreesboro City and Rutherford County School Systems.
The purpose of the BEP Nissan Teacher Minigrant Award program is to provide resources for teachers who demonstrate innovation through teaching concepts beyond core curriculum. Thanks to a generous investment from Nissan, the Business Education Partnership Foundation awards minigrants in sums of up to $500.00 per proposal; a maximum of two proposals per teacher may be submitted and potentially awarded.
BEP Nissan Teacher Minigrant Awards are not intended to fund classroom technology, school supplies, or other equipment related to teaching typical curriculum. Rather, minigrants are intended for use to creatively teach and enhance concepts through meaningful interactive learning, as opposed to rote lecture and instruction.
Applications complete with program guidelines must be submitted online at rutherfordbep.org. To be considered, all grant applications must be received by the BEP Foundation by 4:30 p.m. on October 11. The BEP Nissan Teacher Minigrant Awards Breakfast will be held Thursday, December 5th, from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. at Stones River Country Club.
