The 2023 application process is now closed.
To encourage and acknowledge the ongoing work of teaching girls critical leadership skills, what we fund is limited only to your creativity and imagination — from educator honorarium or professional development to classroom supplies for a unit or capstone project or field trip. Three $1,000 grants are awarded per year. Individuals who have been awarded a Classroom Catalyst grant in the last two calendar years are not eligible to be funded during the current round.
In 500-750 words (not including budget):
Explain your intended purpose for the project, including how you plan to improve girls leadership skills and impact on boys and other students;
Describe the project, including the duration and how many students you aim to influence; and
Sketch out a loose budget if you will use the funds in a way other than an honorarium.
After you receive a gift, at the conclusion of the project, we would appreciate having an email or letter from you and/or your students describing how the effort went and how the gift assisted you in achieving your goal(s). A short video of yourself highlighting your attempts, struggles, and/or successes at leadership would also be greatly appreciated.
