Classroom Grant Program
The Oregon Schools Foundation (OSF) Grant program provides opportunities for teachers and students to learn in new environments, experience creative teaching methods, and facilitate social and academic out of school experiences for students who need enrichment and support. Grants are accepted for amounts up to $3,000, with priority given to collaborative proposals which focus on district educational initiatives.
Grant applications will be accepted Feb and March 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year. Deadline to submit is March 31, 2018.
Grant Funding Timetable:
Grant recipients will have a 12 month period for program implementation beginning April 2018 through March 2019. We encourage applicants to use all funds by the end of the 2018-19 school year if possible.
Grant Application Review:
Each grant application will be reviewed by the OSF Grant committee which is comprised of community members and OSF Board members. No quotas will be set by school, grade or subject matter and each application will be evaluated individually and on its own merits, subject to meeting the grant application criteria. Final decision on grant funding will be made by the OSF grant committee. The selection process will commence immediately after the application deadline and applicants will be notified of the Foundation's selections no later one month following the application deadline.
To support creative program ideas that will enhance student learning, encourage creativity in the classroom, reward imaginative teaching and enrich educational experience in Oregon City Schools.

Awardees Follow-Up Responsibility:
It is the expectation of the grant committee that awardees will complete an evaluation form at the end of the grant period. Also, the grantees may be requested to communicate the grant outcomes to other teachers in their school and in their grade across the district.
