San Marino Rotary William “Bill” G. Steele, Jr. Annual Mini-Grant Program
San Marino Rotary Charities annually sponsors a grant award program for San Marino public and private schools. The program started modestly in the mid-1990’s and today awards up to $20,000 to teachers at the local schools. Since the inception of the program, over $250,000 has been awarded to local teachers.
The Mini-Grant program awards up to a $500 cash grant to a teacher to support an innovative classroom instructional project. Many of these projects funded by the Mini Grant program have been subsequently adopted throughout the local schools after having been successfully tested as a prototype project the teachers receiving the awards.
