Kovacik Geography Grants are named in honor of Dr. Charles F. Kovacik, the second coordinator of SCGeo. Dr. Kovacik was instrumental in the growth of geography education in South Carolina.
South Carolina teachers are among our best partners to increase and promote K-12 geographic literacy. These grants are meant to support their geography instruction when traditional funding options are unavailable. Proposed work should directly focus on improving instruction through the development of new curriculum materials or the acquisition of essential classroom materials and equipment. Ineligible expenses include: administrative overhead; air travel; scholarship or travel fellowships; teacher stipends; meals; SCGeo products; and professional meeting fees or dues. Applications that address the geographic literacy needs of rural South Carolina and those that incorporate geospatial technologies (GIS, GPS, Remote Sensing, Internet) are especially welcome.
SCGeo Teacher Grants are given directly to schools to promote and increase geographic literacy in the classroom and school. Grant applications are accepted from any current teacher or administrator in an accredited K-12 school within South Carolina.
