Funding Opportunities

Blue Apple Scholarships

It is our mission to create classrooms where curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity thrive! We never want a lack of funding to be a hindrance to quality instruction. If you are in need of funding support, apply for a Blue Apple Scholarship, and we will review the application against available scholarships and grants.

Finding Additional Funding

Ask Your Administrator

Give your admin an offer they can’t refuse! Use this Administrator Request Letter to fund your favorite project.

Parent/PTA Support

Parents can be your biggest advocates for trying innovative projects in the classroom! If you think your parents would want their students learning content while also engaging in projects that make their world a better place, ask them for help. We’re providing the Blue Apple Brochure and Parent Request Letter to help you seek funding support from parents and PTAs.

Crowd Sourcing and Public Grants

We know how hard it is to be a teacher on limited funds; so, we’ve pulled together a list of a few resources that may help. 

If you have any other resources, let us know. We’d love to share with other teachers.  
One hundred percent of net proceeds go directly to student programs, teacher programs, and innovative teacher awards to help create extraordinary classrooms where curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking thrive! ​
