DKG Mini Grant Program
The Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International is a group of key women educators from Boone and Winnebago Counties.
The Zeta Chapter has established the DKG Mini Grant Program with the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois in order to make financial awards to qualified Early Childhood through Grade 12 Educators currently teaching in Boone and Winnebago Counties.
The DKG Mini Grant Program is funded by two endowments, the Blanche Martin Mini Grant Fund and the Lana P. Smith Memorial Fund, each established in memory of a woman educator who was also a Zeta Chapter member.
This year, the DKG Mini Grant Program will make eight $250 awards, six funded by the Blanche Martin Mini Grant Fund and two funded by the Lana P. Smith Memorial Fund. Criteria and guidelines for these grants may be found below. Only one application is necessary to apply for both mini grants.
