Doug Prouty Grant

Doug Prouty was an active member of EBCUE, CUE, and a believer that technology could be a source of motivation, excitement, and engagement in the classroom. In that spirit, the Doug Prouty Classroom Grant Program seeks to fund K-12 classroom teachers who want to implement creative, innovative, and student-centered uses of technology that support student achievement in the core curriculum—English/language arts, math, history/social science, and science. The grant seeks to fund specific, curriculum-based activities/projects that a classroom teacher wishes to implement in his/her classroom. Teachers are encouraged to think outside the box and develop lessons that will use technology in new and creative ways that involve students in higher-level learning. Applications for the 2015 grant can be submitted starting in November 2014. Grant winners will be notified in April or May 2015.

NOTE: To receive a $2000 grant, you must be an EBCUE member. If you attended Cool Tools, you received a year's membership in CUE as part of the registration fee. Otherwise, to join CUE, go to  http://cue.org/membership.

Grant Errata

To protect grant recipient(s) from tax liability, EBCUE grant materials, equipment and training are awarded in the name of the teacher to the public, parochial or independent district/school associated with the teacher at the date of the grant award. Materials, equipment and unused training funds remain with the teacher as long as he/she remains employed by the the public, parochial or independent district/school and follow the teacher should he/she be assigned to another school in the same public, parochial or independent district or independent school. Should the teacher leave the public, parochial or independent district or independent school, the materials and equipment must remain at the last school at which the teacher was employed prior to leaving.
