Teacher Grants

Chuck Miller Teacher Grants

Congratulations to our 2019 Chuck Miller Teacher Grant winners! A complete list of recipients can be found HERE.

Because school budgets are often tight, principals and teachers find themselves at times restricted on implementing new ideas and projects. 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. 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 grant is $1,500. Each teacher can submit a maximum of two applications as the lead teacher.

Thank you to Chuck Miller for continuing to provide annual funding for the Chuck Miller Teacher Grants, making it possible for teachers to bring a multitude of ideas to the classroom.
