Classroom Grants

What We Do


CCEF is excited to announce the opening of the Career Explorations classroom grant application again for the 2019-2020 school year. Thank you to Ellis Jewelers for their continued support of this grant that introduces middle or high school students to careers that do not necessarily require a four-year college degree. 

Deadline for applications is December 6, 2019. 

Our classroom grant program recognizes the incredible ideas our teachers and staff have for their students to experience learning in a new way! To date, we have awarded more than $140,000 to teachers and staff in Cabarrus County Schools.

Always the best time of the year when we get to surprise our grant recipients with a visit from the Award Team! Congratulations to the following teachers for being awarded 2019-2020 classroom grants:
