The Webutuck Quest for Excellence Fund is an endowed fund whose purpose is to support efforts in the Webutuck Central School District that: create a culture where academics are respected; cultivate an atmosphere of high expectations of achievement; encourage student initiative, creative thinking and innovation; and inspire a love of learning.
Possible projects include, but are not limited to: independent study, new programs; extracurricular activities, individual creative projects in or outside the classroom, visiting speakers, artists-in-residence; professional development for teachers that will directly impact a broader number of individuals, library resources, and class field trips.

Grants awarded will generally range from $500 to $1,000.
Projects must be completed by the end of the school year.
Proposals are accepted from teachers, students, administrators, community members, or community nonprofits to enhance and enrich educational opportunities for students and teachers of the Webutuck Central School District.
