Grants Help Make Secondary Education ‘Second’ to None

From the name alone, ‘secondary’ education may not sound as important as ‘primary’ education. But, in fact, we all know just how crucial a high school education is to a person’s future. Not only do many jobs require a high school diploma or equivalent, but having this education can also significantly increase one’s earning potential. High school is a major part of a child’s life. This transition from middle to high school oftentimes means more responsibility and independence, giving students a chance to figure out which path they want to take in college and grow their own confidence as an individual.

Due to the importance of high school, GrantWatch has made sure that secondary education even has its own grant category in the site’s database. Today, GrantWatch is sharing 10 of these grants for secondary education in the list below. Using GrantWatch, you can also find a list of foundations that have funded secondary education programs and resources in the past.
