Educator Grants

The EVSC Foundation and Public Education Foundation have offered educator grants for many years. The sections below provide information about current educator grants as they have existed from each organization.

Now that we are coming together as one foundation, we will streamline the grant application process for educators under one unified grant program. We will do everything we can to ensure educators have the same opportunities available going forward. More information about the updated grant program will be available over the coming months.

Expanding the Experience Grant

EVSC Foundation is committed to helping teachers in the classroom achieve Goal #1 of EVSC’s Continuous Improvement Plan:

All students will develop to their maximum potential and be successful throughout every stage of life.

Funded by the Expanding the Experience Endowment, EVSC teachers and staff may apply for one grant per quarter. To request up to $4,000 in funds from EVSC Foundation for your project, please click here.

Priority is placed on projects aligned with the EVSC CIP Goal #1. Teachers are encouraged to align projects with the PLEP instructional core listed in the EVSC 2016-2021 CIP. Requests aligned with individual school CIPs and curriculum standards are also eligible for funding.

Grant funding will be considered for projects that promote:

            > students’ engagement in their own learning
            > increasing teachers’ professional knowledge and skills
            > academically challenging content

The grant applications are accepted all year. Up to $4,000 may be requested. See below for dates regarding deadlines and funding.
