Teacher Grants

Last year, the Education Foundation awarded over $20,000 in grants to teachers through this program. The Foundation is looking forward to teaming with you again this year to benefit the students of Lowell Schools through creative and innovative educational activities. The Lowell Education Foundation Board wants to especially thank the grant writers and encourage all staff to pursue grant requests in the areas of core curriculum enrichment, arts and music enhancement and technology enhancement.

Grant applications must be received at the Central Office to the attention of “Education Foundation Grants” by the end of the work day on October 10, 2017. The Education Foundation will notify all applicants if their application is approved or disapproved no later than November 1, 2017 .
