Grant Amounts

Thanks to the generous support of our donors and community members, Greenwood Education Foundation is pleased to offer approximately $15,000 in grants each awarded cycle year via two programs:

1) Education Innovation and Excellence - GEF prefers these grants in the range of $500 - $1500 however smaller or larger grant amounts may be considered based on demonstrated project impact and outcomes. We encourage district - wide and/or collaborative projects across schools.


2) Professional Development - Professional Development grants support the growth, development, and leadership of our corporation staff. Applicants for this funding stream must work with the Building Principal and District PD Coordinator. Funds may not be used for certifications and/or graduate credits.


All employed staff and administrators in the Greenwood Community School Corporation are encouraged to apply.

We will only accept one application per individual per school year as a project lead. If you received a grant during Grant Cycle #2 in 2019, you are not eligible to apply until Grant Cycle #2 2020.

Collaborative grants across buildings and departments are strongly encouraged(please note - there is no limit to the number of collaborative grants an applicant can be a member of.

How to apply!

Applications and evaluations MUST be submitted via the online grant application and reporting form. We are no longer accepting paper applications via interoffice mail OR as email attachments.

The online application and scoring rubric can be found here:

Grant Review Process

Grant applications will be anonymously reviewed by members of the Greenwood community. Applications with the highest scores will be presented to the Greenwood Education Foundation Board or Directors for final approval.
