“When we established the Investing in Education grant program nearly 15 years ago, our goal was to provide additional support for Hawaii’s hard-working educators who oftentimes have to pay for classroom supplies out of their own pockets. As a result, we’ve helped more than 860 teachers create new learning opportunities for our keiki,” said Andrew Rosen, president and CEO of Hawaii State FCU. “Hawaii State FCU is committed to supporting Hawaii’s public school teachers to ensure our keiki succeed.”

Eligible applicants must submit an application stating the needs of their classroom and how the funds will help them improve student learning. Grant recipients are selected based on application responses and will be reviewed in the order that they are submitted. Funds will be available through April 1, 2023 or until all funds have been disbursed. Applicants must be a member of Hawaii State FCU and be currently employed with the State of Hawaii Department of Education as a public school classroom teacher. Application submissions are limited to one per teacher, per calendar year.

Since 2009, Hawaii State FCU has awarded more than 860 grants and nearly $400,000 to public school teachers, as a result of the Investing in Education grant program. To apply or for more information, please visit https://www.hawaiistatefcu.com/grants-for-teachers/.
