The nonprofit Kids in Need Foundation, dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged schoolchildren and underfunded teachers, is offering grants to improve preschool to 12th-grade students’ reading levels. The Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s sponsorship of the Reading Scholars grants will award $100 to $500 to teachers who wish to conduct innovative classroom projects but lack the funds to do so. Applications will be available on the Kids in Need website, www.kinf.org. Deadline for submission is Sept.30.
