Edwin O. Smith Foundation Faculty and Staff Grant Application AND Opportunity For Excellence Grant Application
The Edwin O. Smith Foundation is dedicated to enriching E. O. Smith's commitment to learning. One initiative that demonstrates this commitment is through an annual call for proposals that seek funding to promote opportunity and excellence for all students.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR THE FACULTY & STAFF GRANT FOR THE 2021-22 ACADEMIC YEAR IS CLOSED. THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR 2022-23 WILL BEGIN IN EARLY SPRING OF 2022.
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. Successful proposals 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 2021-22 school year.
