Edwin O. Smith Foundation Faculty and Staff Grant Application
The Edwin O. Smith Foundation funds annual awards to faculty and staff seeking monetary support for programs and projects outside that fall outside of the regular school budget. The Foundation Board reviews and considers for funding brief grant proposals using a series of assessment guidelines detailed in the attachment below.
At this time, the Foundation is seeking competitive grant proposals from faculty and staff for projects that support teaching effectiveness, scholarly or experiential merit, and/or other forms of student accomplishment.
Funds awarded should provide a mechanism for new or improved approaches to teaching, scholarship and student achievement in any curricular or co-curricular area (e.g. athletics, career and technical education, the arts). Proposals that demonstrate creativity and innovation in advancing the student experience, and have the potential to impact a large number of students, are desired. It is expected that requests fall outside of the typical budget within the corresponding school year (e.g. 2019-20). Proposals may be submitted, in electronic form (Word or PDF), to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 27, 2019.
