Apply for a Grant

Grants Applications are due

Friday, October 16, 2015.

It is the objective of the BHEF to encourage new and innovative programs.  We encourage teachers to submit grant applications for programs and technologies (and related supplies) that support creative and effective teaching techniques, enrich learning experiences for students and/or increase collaborations between community groups and the public school system.

Therefore, requests for programs that have been funded by the BHEF or any other organization or source in the past three years should not be submitted. However, we do encourage the three elementary schools to share successful grants and encourage elementary schools to apply for grants funded at one of the other schools. All requests must be completed by a teacher, principal or administrator. Organizations that conduct fund-raising events or campaigns are not eligible to apply.

Please go to the Grants page to see the descriptions of grants awarded in the past. Grants typically range from $100 to $2,500. In rare instances, larger grants are awarded for special programs that impact a large number of students.
