Middle School Book Club Grants

Funded by:


The Middle School Book Club Grants, funded by License4Learning - Florida Specialty Education License Plate program and the School District Education Foundation Matching Grant Program, will be awarded to fund book clubs for reluctant readers. The goal of Middle School Book Club is to strengthen literacy skills of students in grades 6-8 and encourage reading for enjoyment. The funds are available for e-readers, books, and a small supplement for the book club facilitator.
The MSBC Impact Grant is by invitation only to a few schools.  If you have not received an invitation to apply, per funder requirements, you are not eligible for this grant. Only one bookclub will be permitted at eligible locations this school year.
Grant Amount Available:
  • Up to $1,500 per book club (which includes up to a $500 stipend)
Preference will be given to proposals that target reluctant readers and provide a concise, comprehensive book club budget.
