Preference also will be given to proposals that align with one or more of the following focus areas  — early impact, exceptional educators, innovative schools, and inspired minds.

Grants at two levels of support will be distributed in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years: Grants of $5,000 or less, to be considered on a rolling basis; and grants of between $5,000 and $200,000, to be considered annually.
