Estimated Size of Grant:

APS schools and departments may apply up to $10,000 in funding.

Please note: funding is limited and large grants will be rare.

Term of Contract:

All awards are for one year and does not imply a commitment for additional funding.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants:
- APS K-12 schools and APS Departments are eligible to apply, which includes teachers, educational assistants, librarians, counselors, social workers and other school personnel. Applicants may apply as individuals or as part of a group.
- All applicants must certify that the principal/immediate supervisor is aware of the proposal and supports the application. Achieve Awards will not be funded without the support of school administration.
- Only APS employees may submit applications.

Other Considerations:
- Agreements or partnerships with outside agencies/nonprofit groups should have the approval of APS administration prior to submitting application. Funding will go to the school, and NOT directly to an external partner.
- Projects funded through the Achieve Awards are school-specific. If a teacher changes schools and/or if the school is not able to implement the program, all funds must be returned to the APS Education Foundation.
- Requests for facility needs will not be funded.

Pre-Application Information:

2019 Fall Cycle opens August 12, 2019, and will close on September 10, 2019, at 5:00 PM MST.

The APS Education Foundation will notify all applicants of the outcome mid-October.

The Achieve Award is a “blind” grant, meaning submissions are judged by members of the Foundation Board and other community members without identifying the school or employee. Please do not include your school's name in the project and budget narrative.
