The Bright Ideas Grant Program is the cornerstone of our Educational Programs. Jones-Onslow is excited to celebrate 28 years of partnering with local educators and school systems by kicking off its Bright Ideas Grant Program for the 2021- 2022 school year. Bright Ideas grants are designed to help provide teachers with specific opportunities to enhance their classroom educational experiences. We will be getting the information out about this year’s program to the schools this month.
This year we will be giving over $70,000 to educators in Onslow, Jones, and the Topsail schools in Pender County. The deadline for submitting bright ideas will be September 24th, with the early bird deadline of September 10th. To date, we have given out over 1.4 million dollars in Bright Idea Grants that have funded over 2,000 projects but, more importantly, have directly impacted the education of over 551,000 students in our area.
