If you want to start a project based on something you are passionate about but don’t have enough money, grants are a helpful resource. Read on to discover some of the most popular grants for all high school students. Here are three ways to fund your high school project-based learning.
Impact on Education
There are multiple opportunities to get investments from Impact on Education. Depending on your project, they can provide you with money for innovations, for example, literacy or music education. Also, you can apply for different scholarships for your projects and just for yourself. More information about current relevant grants and funds can be viewed on the Impact on Education’s website: https://www.impactoneducation.org/what-we-do/grants/.
