Grants of up to $1,000 to Indiana public and private schools and charitable organizations in eligible areas for projects that further the education of local residents. Proposed initiatives should be innovative, incorporate the use of technology, and help students develop important life skills. Funding is intended to benefit the residents of Kosciusko County.

KEYS favors awarding grants that:

  • Make learning fun! KEYS loves creative and innovative ideas that incorporate project-based learning or experiential learning so students aren’t just learning concepts from a text book. This includes hands-on activities and educational games.
  • Promote the importance of education and help develop and enhance social and life skills.
  • Incorporate technology into the classroom that will aid in teaching such as programmable robots, simple machines sets, equipment to flip classrooms, and special computer software. As requests for new technology continue to increase, we will consider how the devices will be used to enhance the education of students.
