Excellence in Education Grants

The Junior League of Panama City partners with The Bay Education Foundation to administer the Excellence in Education grant program. The Excellence in Education grants reward teachers for using creative learning techniques in the classroom, and affords students opportunities that could not be funded otherwise.

Since the program’s inception in 2009, the Junior League of Panama City alone has donated over $85,500 and has impacted thousands of students within the classroom.

We would like to thank all of the teachers who apply for grants through this program. Your commitment to education allows the Junior League to further its mission within our community.
