Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation: Horizon AwardsDeadline: September 24, 2018
The Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Education Foundation Horizon Awards support teachers and other educational professionals in their efforts to provide innovative, quality educational opportunities to students in Albuquerque Public Schools. Horizon Awards are specifically targeted towards classroom projects that advance student learning in three key areas: STEM, Fine Arts and Literacy. The ultimate goal is to support proposals that advance excellence and student achievement within APS.
Amount: A total of up to $100,000 is available to make awards of up to $1,500 for an individual project targeting a single classroom and awards of up to $5,000 for a team project targeting multiple classrooms.
Note: Horizon Awards are intended for the 2018-19 school year. Awardees should be ready to make every effort to spend their grant awards as soon as they are received. If requested, the Foundation will consider requests to carry over funding to the next school year on a limited basis
Eligibility: Certified, school-based staff members, such as teachers, educational assistants, librarians, counselors, social workers and others. As a part of the application, the applicant must certify that the principal is aware of the proposal and supports the application. A Horizon Award will not be funded without the support of school administration. Only school employees may submit applications.
