Teachers and other professionals within the district will be encouraged to apply for grants to be used for innovative educational programs. Grants will be awarded competitively for projects and ideas that will have the greatest positive impact on students’ educational experience. Initially, we anticipate supporting STEM programs (science, technology, engineering, and math) and arts-related initiatives. As sponsorship and support grow and the needs of Delran’s students change, the Foundation may launch initiatives in other disciplines.
We anticipate that grants will range in size from $100 to $1,500. Because the Foundation is in its infancy, we expect grants awarded in the 2015-2016 academic year to be relatively small. As we raise more funds, we expect to be able to increase the number and size of grants awarded.
Grant application dates will be announced in the near future.
