May 1 and December 1
Apply for grants for Family and Community Roles in Supporting Student Success
The foundation’s Pacific Northwest Team is interested in supporting programs and research that advance understanding about the impact of family and community on student achievement from early childhood through college. Approximately ten grants of $25,000 to $50,000 each will be awarded annually.
Please be aware that PNW will change the funding priority for this grant program in 2014. If you have ideas to submit under the current structure, please be sure to send your proposals by December 1, 2013.
Student success is a shared responsibility among families, communities, and schools. Family and community supports are a determining factor in student engagement and success in school. While research supports that effective teaching is the most critical student success factor within school settings, there is a growing body of emerging research and practice exploring the family and community roles that can have the biggest impact on student learning.
If your project meets the criteria above, you may submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) through our online portal. We anticipate ongoing annual deadlines on May 1 and December 1 beginning in 2013, though the specific area of focus (currently Family and Community Roles in Supporting Student Success) may evolve over time. We request only one submission per organization per deadline. Due to the large number of requests we receive, staff is not able to provide individual guidance on LOI submissions.
To get started, please access our online portal by clicking on the link below. Once you have created an account, identify the Pacific Northwest LOI opportunity and download the LOI guidelines to inform the content of your request. After you have completed your account profile, you will be able to review your LOI and make any changes before submitting your request to the foundation.
