Grant Guidelines

For the 2017-18 school year, the East Side Union High School District Education Foundation is proud to make available a total of $10,000 in grant awards for teachers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. A committee of teachers and Foundation board members evaluate grant applications and submit recommendations to the Foundation Board. Individual grant awards are up to $1,000 each.

Please be aware of the following guidelines before starting an application:

  • STEAM grants are intended to extend student learning by supplementing rather than replacing district funding.
  • Funds can be used for the purchase of equipment and/or materials not normally funded through school budgets.
  • Funding is not intended for the purchase of ordinary school supplies that are a part of the regular school budget.
  • Additionally, grants are not awarded to pay teacher stipends or other remuneration.
  • All applications must relate to the teacher’s subject area and classroom activities.
  • Projects must be completed during the 2017-18 school year.
