Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation: Success AwardsDeadline: February 15, 2019
The Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) Education Foundation’s Success Awards are intended to make an impact at a school-wide level. School leaders should apply for programs or projects with the potential to serve large numbers of students and to improve the learning experiences of students in a measurable way. The Foundation envisions its grant programs as an opportunity to pilot new, innovative, or promising programs in the district.
The ultimate goal of the Success Awards is to create a project, or continue a project, that advances academic excellence in a measurable way. Proposed projects should:
- Serve an entire school or a large percentage of students, such as a grade level or department
- Focus on meeting the needs of and improving outcomes for students
- Use measurable outcomes to determine the success of the project
Proposals should focus on a specific need at a school linked to academic results, truancy, school attendance, school climate, or another issue. Applicants should keep in mind that 74% of APS schools are Title I high-poverty schools so this is not a unique need.
Amount: Multiple awards of between $10,000-$25,000 will be made. Awards may be made for one or two years.
Eligibility: A school principal or a district department that deals directly with schools and students. The applicant must have the full support of its school administration. Only APS employees may submit applications.
