This year, the Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program has awarded $1 million in total grants for the 2009-2010 school year to aid middle and high school teachers working in underserved communities.

“We are proud to recognize our nation's educators and their commitment to outstanding teaching through our Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program,” says Howard White, Jordan Brand Vice President. “The opportunities our grant recipients provide to their students help foster students' drive for personal excellence both in and out of the classroom and pave the way for a lifetime of success.”
