Eligible Hawaiian public school teachers will receive up to $500 each for school supplies under a Hawai’i State Federal Credit Union grant program called “Investing in Education.”
The Hawai’i State Federal Credit Union will distribute a total of $40,000 in grants of up to $500 to teachers to help them purchase books, furniture, electronics and other classroom necessities. Applications are available until June 30.
Applicants must be members of the Hawaii State FCU and currently employed by the Hawaii State Department of Education as a teacher. Grant recipients are selected based on responses to applications and will be considered in the order in which they are submitted.
Participants must submit an application outlining the needs of their class and how the funds will help them improve student learning. Funds will be available until June 30 or until all money has been disbursed.
“We appreciate Hawaii’s public school teachers for all they do and recognize the tremendous sacrifices they make every day – especially over the past two years,” said Andrew Rosen, President and Chief from the management of the Hawaii State Federal Credit Union in the press release.
