Unum is committed to building a foundation for our children’s future by supporting school systems that develop strong individuals and school leaders, support successful communities and help build a prepared future workforce. The Unum Strong Schools grant program provides financial support for effective and innovative initiatives that engage students and improve their learning and achievement levels.

Hamilton County Schools Partnership

In 2008, as part of our commitment to education, Unum began a partnership with Hamilton County schools to fund specific school programs and identify volunteer opportunities in the classroom for our employees. An important part of this relationship is the Unum Strong Schools grant program.

Teachers may apply for the mini-grants to benefit students and classroom instruction, and request up to $1,000 to fund innovative educational projects. Teachers may only apply for one grant per year. Several teachers or a grade level may submit a single application. Applications will open Jan. 2018 and funding will be awarded that May for the 2018-19 school year.

Worcester Public Schools Partnership

2016 marks the inaugural year of the Unum Strong Schools grant program in Worcester, Massachusetts. Mini-grants will be awarded for up to $1,500 for literacy-based projects, lessons and materials in Worcester public schools for grades K-3.
