Brockbank Grant for High School Teachers

The W. Hughes Brockbank High School Participation Program was established in 1983 to increase political awareness and raise the level of political participation among high school students in the State of Utah.

Each year, the Hinckley Institute provides several grants ranging from $200 to $500 to assist high school teachers who plan to implement excellent programming that will achieve the mission of the Brockbank Program.


The Hinckley Institute of Politics will award this grant annually to current high school teachers who demonstrate a commitment to increasing civic-mindedness and engagement in their students. Teachers must demonstrate how funds will be used for students to civically engage whether that be through classroom supplies, a field trip, etc.
