As the summer wraps up, the Natick Education Foundation is looking forward to the 2017-2018 school year!
This year, NEF is honored to support the NPS Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA), who will lead STEM professional development in all five elementary schools. As this is such a large initiative, NEF is unable to offer its traditional grant cycles. Instead, we have committed to funding up to $10,000 in mini-grants (less than $500 each) at the middle and high school levels.
We have streamlined the application and evaluation process for the mini-grant proposals. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis and will be evaluated on the 1st of each month. For example, if a proposal is submitted on Sept. 15th, the application will be reviewed starting October 1st. Awardees will be notified by the end of the month, at the latest.
Once the $10,000 limit is reached, additional proposals will not be accepted.
