Hillsboro Schools Foundation Grants

Hillsboro Schools Foundation Grants
February 8, 2021 - Each year through its Innovative Education Grants program, the Hillsboro Schools Foundation (HSF) supports projects that put the tools of exploration, imagination and self-expression directly in students’ hands, providing them with opportunities they would not otherwise have under normal school funding.

The HSF Grant Cycle has some changes for 2021. In order to streamline the process for teachers during this unprecedented year, the requirement for initial short abstract applications has been removed. Instead, each applicant will submit their full proposal just once through a Google Form. Grants of up to $7,500 can be requested. Completed applications are due by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Apr. 22, 2021. Grants will then be reviewed and winners will be announced in late May. Funds are available for each awarded project during the following school year. 

Applicants are encouraged to attend a Grant Writing Workshop offered by HSF via Zoom on Wednesday, Feb. 24, at 3:30 p.m. The link can be requested by emailing foundation@hillchamber.org.

HSF’s application process is simple, fair, and open to all HSD teachers, administrators, staff, and volunteer parent school groups for programs that enhance student achievement both inside and outside the classroom. Proposals are evaluated and selected based on student engagement and achievement, innovative instructional methods and tools, and sustainable, measurable results.
