Habitat for Humanity and State Farm Offer Service-Learning Partnership Grants
Deadline: May 15, 2010

With the support of State Farm, Habitat for Humanity International is offering a Service-Learning Partnership Grant program to provide funds for teachers and schools interested in developing and implementing service-learning projects in partnership with their local Habitat affiliate.

For the 20010-11 school year, teachers and local Habitat affiliates can jointly apply for a one-year grant of up to $7,000 to cover educational expenses associated with the service-learning project. Of that, a maximum of $5,000 may be used as support for the local Habitat affiliate. In addition, partnerships can apply for an additional travel scholarship grant of $1,000 for teachers and affiliate staff to attend either the National Service-Learning Conference presented by the National Youth Leadership Council or the Youth Leadership Conference hosted by Habitat for Humanity International.

Eight Service-Learning Partnership grants will be awarded for the 2010-11 school year to new recipients. In addition, five grants will be awarded to schools that received a Service-Learning Partnership grant prior to 2010. Only one grant will be awarded per school system or affiliate, although the grant may involve multiple teachers and classrooms. Grants may be renewed at the end of the year.

Service-Learning Partnership information and application are available at the Habitat Web site.
