Due to the high number of qualified and deserving applicants we were forced to make very difficult decisions when selecting the recipients of this initiative. To those who did not receive this grant, we applaud you for your efforts and are appreciative of the hard work that you put into securing resources for your students. To that end, we encourage you to visit the First Book Marketplace, which provides books to teachers in low income schools for 50-90% off retail prices.
