Grants of up to $3,000 to Canada public JK-8 schools for projects or programs in the areas of drama, recreation, arts, music, sports, or other extra-curricular activities. Proposed activities should create a fun environment that enhances students' learning. Ideally, projects should leave a tangible legacy behind, may be used year-to-year, and reach the greatest number of students.

S'Cool does not look to fund core academic subjects, but instead those areas that fall outside of the core curriculum but are no less important for a child's development.
