Are you a school-level, community or a district-level partner?  

This is the place to begin discovering the Knox County Schools' Grant process BEFORE you begin writing your grant proposal. 

If you are interested in conducting research and/or writing a grant that involves Knox County Schools, follow the procedures as listed in the "FILES" section at the bottom of this page. 

Is your grant greater than $25,000.00?
ALL grant applications requesting more than $25,000 and involving Knox County School employees and/or students, including community partner grant applications, must be approved by the Grants Office before submission and to obtain a letter of support.  Short timeframe turn-around requests cannot be guaranteed.  Grant application approvals of $25,000 or less are the sole responsibility of the school administration.  The Grant Office will assist schools as requested with their application, providing documentation and offering recommendations for success - with sufficient lead time.
