Proposed projects must be submitted by a full-time teacher and may involve museum or field trips, environmental or science projects, artistic or cultural experiences, civics or community service projects, and the creation of a final student product that promotes student learning. Grant funds may be used for transportation, pre- or post-field trip materials, or other expenses specific to the proposed project.

Grant funds may not be used for the following: computer hardware, salaries, video cameras, sectarian purposes, substitutes, field trips to amusement parks, or for substituting existing funds that are available to support similar services or third party payments. Teachers receiving FEDCO Classroom Enrichment Funds during the 2012-2013 funding cycle will be assigned the lowest priority for funding in this cycle. No funds from FEDCO Classroom Enrichment Fund grants may be used for institutional overhead costs.
