The Phillips Foundation anticipates that it will be able to support Genius & Joy Grant programming at 6-8 North Minneapolis MPS schools.
Each Genius & Joy Grant will provide a stipend of $2,000 to each Educator in the cohort and an additional supply budget of up to $500. This stipend can be split among two or more collaborating Educators.
If a Genius & Joy experience or “class” is offered a second time, Educator(s) will receive an additional $1,000 stipend and have access to an additional $500 supply budget. This may occur if a school provides two weeks of programming in August.
The Site Coordinator will receive an additional stipend of $1,000 for each week that they serve in this capacity.
Grants will support the following types of summer learning programs:
- Week-long, full-day experiences at North Minneapolis schools during the weeks of August 2-6 and August 9-12, 2021.
- Week-long, part-day experiences that enhance programming at North Minneapolis Community Education sites (Franklin Middle School, Cityview Elementary)
