Homeschool Grants

So I have been thinking, as my children get older, their homeschool supplies will only increase. Especially as they get into middle, and high school. So I was wondering if I could apply for a Homeschool Grant. I did some research, and the results were not all that optimistic. It seems it is very difficult to actually get a Homeschool Grant. Matter of fact research said, Microsoft is pretty much the only company that has awarded Homeschool Grants. Ah Ha but I love a challenge. So I am going to try getting said grant. I am not 100% sure yet, how to go about it. If anyone has any experience in writing a grant, I would love to hear from you. This could take me a while, but it is a good goal. Wish me luck.

Tomorrow is test day, and a half day, so there are no lesson plans to post.

I'll be interested to hear how your grant proposal goes!! I've often thought this is something HSLDA needs to get into--encouraging companies to fund grants for homeschoolers.

If you have any tips, I would love to hear them. I have never done one before.

I am not sure how it is done, but years ago when I was homeschooling my children a lady that also homeschooled her children was getting grants for many things. When asked she said does not private schools get grants. The answer is yes, so get the school registered by selecting a name of the School and list it as a private school, non profit and many things happen.

My children were almost through school at that time so I decided to watch. I know many people still in Homeschooling their children...Now have Homeschooling Non Profit Names they al go by. You can select your board from other homeschooling parents. Just follow the laws and see where it takes you. Best Wishes.

Were you able to find any type of travel grant for homeschoolers? We are studying countries and cultures this year and know that it would benefit our children phenomenally if we could actually visit one of the countries! Thanks for letting me know!

To Blessed to the Fullest, I've been thinking the same for getting travel grants for my homeschooled children, since they practice 5 different languages at home. Thanks for letting me know as well.

You know, the HSLDA does, in fact, support homeschoolers in financial crisis. You do have to provide your financial information and prove your need, but there are grants available at http://www.homeschoolfoundation.org. Doing a web search also does provide some help on homeschool grant information. Check with your local homeschool co-ops and with local organizations as well. There are usually plenty of people willing to help, if you ask the right questions and are willing to put the time into it. Blessings! Elisha Shepard
