Our mission at Partnership for Extraordinary Minds (xMinds) is to improve the educational experiences and outcomes of the autistic students in Montgomery County. To advance this mission, xMinds offers grants to help motivated MCPS educators pursue research-based trainings and purchase curricula and curricular materials that will enable them to better support their students on the autism spectrum.
Individual grants in the range of $50 to $500 will be awarded on a rolling basis by the xMinds Board of Directors, who will select the recipients from the applications received. The Board will, in its sole discretion, determine which applications to grant, considering the Board’s assessment of both the quality of the training or materials requested and the applicant’s potential to make use of them to advance the mission of xMinds.
We encourage applications from special and general educators, para-educators, administrators, and related service providers employed by MCPS. Apply Online for an xMinds Educator Grant.
