KCCU teacher grant program

We understand that great teachers are always looking for innovative ways to expand their instruction and engage students. Often times they use their own funds to purchase supplies in order to provide the best experience for their students. Here at KCCU, we are committed to helping teachers that are educating our future leaders. KCCU is now offering our Teacher Grant Program to provide assistance to our valuable educators. Our 2021 Grant process is currently closed and we would like to congratulate our 2021 winners.
