SCCH Grants for Teachers


The Council provides mini-grants of up to $1000 for educators and community leaders working to expand Holocaust education throughout their classrooms and communities. The aims of the grant projects must coincide with the mission of the Council to commemorate SC survivors and concentration camp liberators and to promote Holocaust education. The most successful grant applications are those for Holocaust books or materials, school or community commemoration programs, guest speakers, teacher professional development, or awareness-raising events.

K-12 South Carolina educators in all subjects are encouraged to apply. The Council will also consider grant applications from organizations and university programs, but these funds are limited.

The grant process involves three interconnected steps:

  1. Review the Grant Application Guidance Sheet
  2. Fill out and submit the Grant Application
  3. Complete the Final Report within six weeks of the event’s completion

IIf you have questions after reviewing the Guidance Sheet and Grant Application documents, please don’t hesitate to contact the Council for advice.

We look forward to supporting your projects and thank you for your dedication to Holocaust education in South Carolina!
