Albuquerque Public School Education Foundation: Achieve Awards

Deadline: February 15, 2018

The Achieve Awards are offered twice a year to support clubs and student activities at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Key criteria include the number of students to be served and the potential of the project to support student engagement through clubs and extracurricular activities. The purpose of the Achieve Awards are to help support clubs and activities, which do much to engage students beyond the regular school day.

Funding criteria:

  • Impact: Proposals should identify the number of students the project will serve and the learning students will demonstrate as a result of their participation
  • Innovation: Proposals should identify the method of implementation, address why it is new and different, and how could it be duplicated within classrooms and schools throughout the district
  • Investment: Proposal should identify why the items in the budget are necessary to completing the project (especially when it comes to technology) and how requested materials or equipment will improve learning

Amount: A total of up to $60,000 is available through this cycle with grants ranging from $2,500-$10,000. Funding is limited and large grants will be rare.

Eligibility: Certified, school-based staff members, such as teachers, educational assistants, librarians, counselors, social workers, and others. The applicant must certify that the principal is aware of the proposal and supports the application. Only Albuquerque Public School employees may submit applications.
