Submissions of up to $10,000 will be reviewed, though it’s important to note funding is limited and large grants will be rare.
Fall Achieve Awards are intended for the 2018-19 school year. Awardees should be ready to make every effort to spend their grant awards as soon as they are received. Spring Achieve Awards are intended for either the spring of the 2018-19 school year or the 2019-20 school year.
Funding is for one year and does not imply a commitment for additional funding.
Eligible applicants are certified, school-based staff members, such as teachers, educational assistants, librarians, counselors, social workers and others. As a part of the application, the applicant must certify that the principal is aware of the proposal and supports the application. An Achieve Award will not be funded without the support of school administration. Only APS employees may submit applications.
- Agreements or partnerships with outside nonprofit groups should have the approval of APS administration. Funding will go to the school, and NOT directly to a partner nonprofit.
- Projects funded through the Achieve Awards are school-specific. If a teacher changes schools before the implementation of the grant, funds must be returned to the APS Education Foundation.
- No out-of-state travel will be funded in 2018-19.
- For grant applications that include requests with technology, it is strongly recommended filling out and submitting the APS Education Foundation Technology Funding Request Survey. You must be logged into your APS Google account using your APS credentials to access the survey.
Requests for facility needs will not be funded.
The APS Education Foundation's Achieve Awards are offered twice a year.
