Grant of $50,000 to a Central New Mexico nonprofit, educational institution, or government entity to foster academic and personal success for middle school children in Central New Mexico. Funding is intended to advance the future personal, educational, and professional pathways of students in grades 6 through 8. Eligible initiatives must serve students in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia and/or Torrance counties.
Applicants may apply for an ongoing or new program. Organizations are encouraged to demonstrate collaborative thinking when submitting applications.
Key interest areas for this opportunity include programs that strengthen:
1. Parent/adult/mentor involvement: Programs that engage adults as role models or serve as supportive figures in a middle school student’s life and education.
2. Out-of-school time/extended learning programming: After-school, summer or other out-of-school time programs that boost students’ educational, social and/or behavioral growth to keep them engaged in their academic success. Programs may include, but are not limited to, math, literacy, STEM, arts, sports.
3. Project-based learning: Programs in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.
4. Transitional programs: Programs that address the challenges middle school students may face transitioning from elementary school to middle school and leaving middle school to enter high school. Thoughtful transitions can be critical in creating a continuum of positive educational trajectory.
5. Career readiness: Programs that expose students to career and workforce development opportunities as a way to supplement classroom activities. This may also include financial literacy and soft-skill development.
6. Teacher/professional development: Programs that support the advancement of teachers’ professional and classroom development so they can better position their students for academic and personal success.
