Application Requirements

  • Applicant must be a full time preK-12 classroom teacher in the United States or Canada. If your teaching position is unclear in your application, we cannot consider you for a grant. If you are awarded a grant and then accept another position in your school district next summer (like a coaching or curriculum position), we will be happy for you, but the grant will be voided. Grants cannot be transferred to colleagues.

  • Applicant must have the start of a working classroom library.

  • Applicant must be willing to be included in Book Love Foundation promotional materials / website and participate in research into the effectiveness of classroom libraries and book clubs on student outcomes in reading. We expect grant winners to collect records and help us advance this important work. This is a partnership. If we choose you, we expect you to help us help others. 

  • This grant is given to you to support your work as a classroom teacher. It is not given to the school or school district. Please be sure this is clear to your administrators before you apply. If you leave the district, the books go with you.

​If you meet the above requirements, please complete book clubs grant application by answering all the questions. Please apply for only one of the grants. We will not be able to review duplicate applications. To submit your application, carefully follow the process instructions at the end of the application document. Every year we are inspired by you. Thank you for being a teacher and for giving us a window into your world.
