TEA Announces Competitive Grant Opportunities

Applications for the Grown Your Own Grant Program are due November 15, 2019.

The Principal Residency Grant is intended to provide preparation and certification costs to cover a year-long residency for aspiring principals. Applications for the Principal Residency Grant are due November 12, 2019.
