Chuck Miller Teacher Grants

Because school budgets are often tight, principals and teachers find themselves at times restricted on implementing new ideas and projects. PEF’s Chuck Miller Teacher Grants are an important resource for teachers that provide unique experiences and learning opportunities for students that are outside of the classroom budget.

The maximum amount per project is $1,500 again this year. Each teacher can submit a maximum of two applications as the lead teacher. Application and more information can be found here:

• September 27, 2019 – Deadline to submit application
• November 1, 2019– Deadline for teachers to sign and return grant contracts to PEF
• November 14, 2019 – Grant recipients honored at the PEF’s Donor Appreciation Food and Wine Fest
• March 31, 2020 – Deadline for final submission of financial reimbursement receipts

In 1990, Peninsula Education Foundation was able to establish the Chuck Miller Teacher Grant program due to the generosity of Chuck Miller, former Rancho Vista Elementary principal, past president of PEF and local business leader. Chuck and Betsy Miller have continued to provide annual funding for Chuck Miller Teacher Grants, making it possible for teachers to bring a multitude of ideas to the classroom.
