Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley (CFHV)
Grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 to New York middle and high school teachers in Dutchess, Orange, and Ulster Counties to enhance science education in the classroom through the purchase of laboratory and classroom science equipment. Funds may be used for light probes, temperature probes, microscopes, computer-related equipment and software, and other laboratory tools.
Funding priority will be given to requests that are well-written, for equipment that is durable and will serve a large number of students. Requests that include information relative to how the lessons using the equipment will positively impact students, spur their interest in science-related careers and provide a strong educational foundation for college-level curriculum will receive special consideration. Requests that note equipment sharing across schools within the same district are also encouraged.
Applications and requests in excess of the $1,000 limit will be considered for cooperative ventures across different fields and disciplines that affect a large number of students.
