Competitive Grants
Applications now being accepted


The Tri-Creek Education Foundation (TCEF) is proud to announce its 18th annual Competitive Grant Opportunity. 

Due to the many contributions received from generous donors who wish to support classroom projects and programs, the Foundation is able to offer up to $20,000 to finance competitive grants!


Applications due

Monday, October 7, 2019

The application process is easy:

  • Come up with a creative idea that will positively impact students.

  • Download and print a grant application.

  • Submit a hard copy of the completed application by Monday, October 7, 2019 before 4:00 p.m. to the Foundation’s mailbox at Tri-Creek School Corporation central office.

Remember to include the budget worksheet and to allow time for your principal to comment and sign off on your proposal.

The grant application process is not limited to teachers; all Tri-Creek employees are eligible.

New, innovative proposals will be given priority for funding.  Projects that were previously funded through the competitive grant process will be considered only after new projects are considered, if grant funds remain.  Please be aware that the Foundation does not fund teacher stipends.


Grant recipients will be notified by Friday, October 25, 2019 and will be presented information packets at the Thursday, November 14, 2019 Tri-Creek school board meeting.


We look forward to receiving an abundance of applications and wish good luck to all who apply.  If you have any questions, please call Lynne Haberlin at 219-781-3087 or email
