DUE DATE FOR FALL 2018: TO BE ANNOUNCED.

GRANT GUIDELINES

During the Spring  and Fall semesters of each school year, the Granville Education Foundation (GEF) accepts grant applications from teachers and staff of the Granville Schools. The purpose of these grants is to fund innovative projects that enhance and enrich classroom instruction, but, for a variety of reasons, are unable to be funded through the district's budget.  To find out more about our grants, please feel free to view our powerpoint presentation.

The grant applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of several trustees of the GEF and one or more community members.  After careful review, the grant committee makes its recommendations to the full GEF Board, which then votes on each proposed grant. Teachers are notified of the decisions. Those approved have two semesters to use the funds.

Several organizations affiliated with our schools offer funding for projects.   GEF has compiled a Resource Guide with a summary of partner organization's missions and funding initiatives.  Unfortunately, GEF cannot fund individual teacher development.
