Nissan awards $90,000 in grants to fund innovative learning opportunities for Mississippi students

Today Nissan and BankPlus will award 32 grants totaling $90,281 to fund creative educational projects taught by teachers in the Canton and Madison County school districts, which will each receive 16 grants. The Nissan/BankPlus Education Mini-Grant Program, administered by the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson, has awarded more than $650,000 to local schools since the program was created in 2007.

Each year local teachers, counselors and school administrators are invited to apply for the grants, which provide funding for projects that their school’s budget will not cover. Grant awards range from $500 to $5,000 and support innovative teaching and learning that aligns with state-mandated curricula.
