Grant Programs

2018 Mini Grant Application

Educational Mini Grants: Educational Mini Grants are a favorite among Cumberland County teachers with CIS awarding approximately $8,000 at an annual teacher recognition luncheon each year. The program provides merit grants of up to $750 for teachers who have developed innovative classroom programs using special equipment, manipulatives, or creative instructional materials.

Thank you to all teachers who submitted grants for consideration.  Your dedication to students continues to inspire!
Bill Harrison Scholarship Fund: The Bill Harrison Scholarship Fund was established in 2008 by former Superintendent Bill Harrison in partnership with CIS – CC  to assist a Cumberland County Schools graduate who plans to pursue a career in teaching. Dr. Harrison intends that this scholarship allow a local graduate, perhaps a first-generation college student, to achieve his/her goal of becoming a teacher.
