Check back in the Spring for 2020–2021 Opportunities

The Claremont Educational Foundation believes in supporting CUSD’s top-notch educational staff and nurturing a space where innovative ideas can develop and flourish. We are excited to fund grants of up to $2,000 to CUSD teachers and principals for creative projects that engage students in high-impact learning opportunities in both CEF’s traditional areas of focus (art, music and technology) as well as in other subject areas (humanities, sciences, etc). The focus of these grants is to enhance access to creative, project-based learning for CUSD students. Teachers may apply individually, groups of teachers may submit a proposal together for a collaborative school-site or grade-level project, or principals may submit a proposal for a school-wide project. Requests for Proposal will be posted every Spring for projects intended to start in the Fall. Teachers and principals in Claremont Unified School District are eligible to apply.
