promote STEM education
* Projects that enhance
teaching and learning
Grants will be considered only for projects/uses which are approved but are not sufficiently funded through the East Grand Forks Public Schools.
Awards range up to $1000, unless an alternative amount is decided at the discretion of the Board.
Any East Grand Forks Public School staff or educator is eligible to apply.
Any grade level, discipline, course of study, or extra-curricular activity that is recognized by the East Grand Forks Public Schools is eligible.
Grant applications may be submitted by educators individually or collaboratively between disciplines, grade levels, or areas of interest.
Books or print material requests will only be granted through the District Media Specialist. Any materials granted will be the property of the individual school and School District #ISD 595, not the holdings of the grant requestor.
Grant Applications requesting technology equipment must be approved by the Technology Specialist prior to submitting the application to ensure they are compatible with the district technology.
