Do you have a project you’d like to launch, but need funding for it? Small grants of up to $1,000 and technology grants for up to $3,000 are available to MCPS staff through the MCPS Educational Foundation.
The Foundation receives funds to support educational programs from charitable foundations, government granting agencies, individual estates and community supporters. Each year, the Foundation funds extended hours for technology access and small grants that are used for programs, including but not limited to support for at-risk students, student participation, support for the arts, parent involvement, and technological support.
Applications and guidelines are now available online. The deadline for submitting applications is Thursday, Sept. 26. Programs are to be carried out during the 2013–2014 school year. The online applications are interactive and must be downloaded, typed, and printed for submission.
