Grants - SCSD Educational Foundation

Our purpose

Since its inception, the Syracuse City School District Educational Foundation has funded over $875,000 in education grants to schools throughout the District.

Due to the limitations and uncertain circumstances of the pandemic, this year grant applications are available to teachers and school administrators until March 31, 2021 and applications will be reviewed as they are received.

The Educational Foundation’s grants program has successfully provided funding for a wide array of educational resources ranging from educational technology, class programming aides, books, tutorial programs, supplies, instructional software programs, field trips, equipment, and the components necessary for presentations and classroom initiatives. An 11-person grants committee of the Board of Directors reviews all grants and presents their recommendations to the full board for approval.

How To Apply
The SCSD Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2020-2021 Grant Applications are now available. We are continuing our online application process, which makes applying for your grant much easier. The web-based application allows you to work at your own pace, save your work, and log on as many times as needed to complete and submit your materials. Only digitally submitted applications will be accepted.

The SCSD Educational Foundation accepts grant applications at any time during the year, but only reviews and awards funds in October of each school year.
