Innovations Grant Program 2020-2021
The Union Endicott Education Foundation announces its Innovations Grants Program for 2020-2021. Innovations Grants are designed to fund creative and innovative projects that will enhance the learning experience for our students but which would not be included in the normal school district budget. Grants can be developed by UE professional staff in any combination of the following: teachers, administrators, other staff and/or community collaborators. Community collaboration could include but is not limited to community business partners, service groups or individual community members.
Innovations Grants are available to UE professional staff members in amounts up to $1500. Projects can range from enrichment to extra support for students in need. Funding can be used but is not limited to purchasing equipment and materials, providing transportation, author/scientist/artist visits. Projects should be aligned with the Union-Endicott School District mission statement and commencement goals and need the approval of the appropriate building administrator.
In keeping with our focus on innovation, UEEF will consider funding a renewal for one year only. Renewals will be funded at a maximum of fifty percent of the original award. Renewals MUST include a summary of the original grant's report. Successful previously funded projects that change significantly in scope and/or target audience will be considered as new projects.
Grant proposals must be in the UEEF mailbox in the superintendent's office by 4:00 p.m. on April 24, 2020. Proposals will be reviewed by the UEEF Grant Committee. Recommended grants will then be presented to the UEEF Board of Trustees and the Board of Education for final approval. Applicants will be notified when this process is complete. Projects must be completed by June 5, 2021.
