The Rutherford Education Foundation has announced that it will accept educational grant applications for the 2019 grant cycle. Grants requests will be accepted February 1, 2019 through April 1, 2019. Please be sure to have grant requests submitted by the April 1, 2019 deadline in order for your grant to be reviewed. At the May REF board meeting, funding is voted on and applicants will be notified of their award. Funds are then used for implementation in the fall.
Any person, including Rutherford administrators and teachers, is invited to submit an application as are community groups associated with Rutherford schools such as Parent Teacher Associations or Home School Associations.
Applications will be judged primarily on educational merit, innovation and need. Compliance with the educational goals and objectives of the Rutherford School District is a factor in making grant decisions. There is no limit on the amount of a grant request.
Grant application forms are available for download by clicking on this PDF link. Hard copies can also be obtained from the district’s central administration office and each school’s principal’s office.
Completed applications should be reviewed by your administrator and then sent to the board office to Mr. Hurley’s attention.
Applicants may be invited to meet with the REF Board of Trustees prior to making its final funding decision. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact a member of the Board of Trustees, or the REF e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
