Educators who teach in Hyde Park, West Roxbury, Dedham, Norwood, Milton and Brookline are eligible to apply for funding from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation under their newly created Educator’s Innovation School Grant Program.
Recognizing the role dedicated teachers play in the development of today’s youth and the budget constraints most classrooms have, the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation created their Educator’s Innovation School Grant Program in an effort to supplement innovative teacher-driven programs.
“Since it was established in 2011, the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation has been awarding grants to many wonderful organizations in the community,” comments William M. Parent, President & CEO of Blue Hills Bank. “Our new Educator’s Innovation School Grant Program will now afford local teachers the opportunity to directly apply for funding that will enrich their classroom curriculum.”
Focusing on promoting academic excellence in the schools, teachers may apply for funds up to $2,500 to enrich their classroom curriculum in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. School principals may apply for up to $10,000 in funding.
“We are so excited to introduce this new grant opportunity for local school teachers and administrators,” comments Janice Kenney, chairperson of the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation. “For the past year, the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation Board has been working towards being able to directly fund academic programs that are both designed and implemented by the educators whose students will benefit from it. We anticipate receiving many applications for the 2013/2014 school year.”
The application deadline for the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation Educator’s Innovation School Grant Program is October 18th at 5pm and awards recipients will be notified by the end of November.
