Major Grant Process
DEAD LINE EXTENDED UNTIL MARCH 5th
Major Grants are intended for strategic programs that are focused on student learning. This year’s grant budget has not been finalized, but we anticipated being able to award in an amount similar to prior years.
Past awards have primarily been granted to proposals that affect student learning across multiple grade levels and/or multiple schools. Furthermore, proposals for programs that have proven successful thru a prior year’s Mini Grant award or other means will have a higher likelihood receiving a Major Grant award.
CEF is seeking grant proposals for programs that would not otherwise be possible through other funding sources, or to expand a program the district currently offers. CEF does not set a quota on the dollar amount or number of Major Grant awards. Instead, grants will be awarded strictly on the merits of this year’s proposal. The amount CEF budgets for Major Grants may be awarded to a single award recipient or split amongst multiple recipients. There is no minimum dollar award amount.
The application for a Major Grant may be found here.
The application deadline for each grant category is Sunday, March 5th, 2017.
Anyone can submit a grant application, but each proposal requires a CSD administrator sponsor. Sponsors are typically, but not always, a building administrator.
Applications that involve technology must receive a letter of support from CSD’s IT Department; applicants seeking such support need to contact Deputy Superintendent of Technology, Lisa Greseth no later than Friday, February 26, 2017.
This year, CEF Mini Grants will be using a new online application process. The application can be found at www.cefcamas.org
