This year, 34 grants were awarded and the complete list can be viewed by clicking here. Winners will be recognized at PEF’s Food & Wine Fest on Thursday, November 17 at Trump National Golf Club from 6:30-8:30 pm.
PEF’s Chuck Miller Grants are awarded to teachers to fund projects of special merit and creativity that promise a unique learning opportunity for students. Any classroom teacher in the PVPUSD is eligible to apply. Applications are judged on the applicants’ proposed use of grant funds, the benefits to students, and the potential for helping to enhance classroom instruction in the school or the district in general. Grants are valued up to $1,500 each.
In 1990, the Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) 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 the Peninsula Education Foundation, 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.
Impact:Hundreds of Chuck Miller Grants have been awarded to teachers over the past 25 years. A Chuck Miller Grant application is often the first grant writing experience for a teacher, equipping them with confidence and a valuable skill set. These grants have nurtured exciting new programs. Thank you Chuck and Betsy Miller for your continued annual support for Chuck Miller Teacher Grants!
