Teacher Grant Submission Instructions

Eligible applicants may submit grant applications to the Idaho CapEd foundation using the following steps. Applications are accepted from August 1 through March 1.

1. Create a login

Registration is open any time, however, grant submissions are only allowed from August 1 through March 1. Once you are registered, you may log in and work on your applications at any time.

2. Start Working on Your Application

Visit your Teacher Dashboard and click on "New Application" to get started. Fill out each required section of the application to the best of your ability. Whatever you entered can be edited at a later time, so don't feel pressured to get all of your information down all at once. Once the application is completed and saved, you will be able to view its application page where you can add your funding information, edit any existing information, or submit your application to your principal for approval. Your teacher dashboard will also display all of the applications you've created.

In the description of your grant application, please do not include the teacher name, school name, or district name.

3. Principal Approval

When you send your application to your principal, they will receive an email from us containing a link to review the application. If they approve the application, it will be sent for review by the Idaho CapEd Foundation.

It may be a good idea to get in touch with your Principal in advance, so they will be looking for the email. Following up may also be a good idea. You will be notified via email when your Principal takes action on your application.

Principals receive lots of email. If they haven’t responded to your grant request yet, they may need to be reminded. Also, ask them to add "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." and "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." to their spam filter's whitelist. It may be possible that the email just didn't make it to their inbox. You can resend or change the email in the Principal Approval section of your application.

4. Resubmitting Grant Requests

You may resubmit a grant request by visiting your application and repeating the "Principal Approval" step above. If your application has not been edited since its latest approval date, you may also click the "Bypass Approval" button to immediately approve it without needing your principal to do so for you.

There is no need to duplicate applications for resubmission anymore.
