MassCUE Classroom Grants

MassCUE’s competitive Classroom Grants offer up to $3,000 to current MassCUE members.  The grant application for the 2022-2023 school year closed in December 2022.

If you have an idea for infusing technology purposefully into the classroom, then this is the grant for you!  We fund hardware and almost anything else you need to make your idea come alive.  (Grant funds cannot be used for stipends).

In keeping with MassCUE’s commitment to supporting educators who are dedicated to building communities where every learner creates, contributes, and succeeds in a connected world, we have prioritized diversity in our scoring criteria.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients of the 2020 MassCUE/MASCD Spring Leadership Conference Administrator Scholarship!
