The Spencer+Colton Grants offer teachers the opportunity to inspire their students through creative, innovative projects and activities in and out of the classroom by providing grants in the amount of $500 per teacher. Any NVUSD teacher may apply for a grant. We will accept applications from individual classroom teachers, as well as those who work across the district. We also encourage teachers to work collaboratively and apply for a grant that will benefit multiple classes.
