Fraser Education Foundation Grant Program

  • MakerSpace at RMS

    The Fraser Education Foundation offers mini-grants and single grants to any staff member in the Fraser Public Schools district.

    The grant program supports funding for all levels to enhance student enrichment, teacher creativity and community involvement through programs that go beyond the scope of normally-funded school budgets.  

    Since its inception in 1987, the FEF has awarded more than $300,000 in grants.

Mini-Grants and Single Grants

  • Mini-Grants (up to $1,000) and Single Grants ($2,000-3,000) are available each year. Requests must include a creative idea or innovative approach for enhancing instructional and learning experiences for all students or that would provide support for students in the learning process. Applicants must explain how the grant will be used to include every student, regardless of ethnicity or gender, and the specific benefits from the project. Non-allowable costs include staff stipends, substitute salaries, conference attendance, college or university course work, or other professional development activities.

    The 2023-2024 Grant Application window is open from September 28 - October 13, 2023. Awards will be made in the fall of 2023.
