Innovation Grants

Innovation Grants are mini grants of up to $1,000 each, and allow YCAL the opportunity to fund innovative projects that support its mission to “engage students in career exploration and development.” At the core of the grant guidelines is the partnership of a business or community organization. Please note that the grant is for the initial/pilot project, with a continuation plan required for maximum impact. York County educators can apply for the grants through an application process which can be found below.

YCAL will be accepting applications for the 2017-2018 School Year starting on October 2, 2017 and will continue accepting up until the end of the dya on January 2, 2018.  Grant recipients will be notified in advance and recognized at the 2018 Career Education and Work Standards Symposium on Thursday February 8, 2018.  Please save the date so you can attend if you are awarded an Innovation Grant.
