Each year the EMS ISD Education Foundation continues its mission of supporting programs that assists in achieving academic excellence. We support our teachers in the development of solutions to enrich and maximize the quality of education.
Our teaching grants and scholarships help our teachers equip themselves with additional tools to achieve these goals. The awarded grants provide funding for new approaches, different formats that can spark a student’s imagination and engage them and ultimately elevate their participation in all subjects.
Scholarships support teachers in pursuing college degrees or certifications that will enhance their skills to ultimately benefit the students of the EMS ISD.
If it is your intent to apply for a teaching grant, we invite you to submit a Letter of Inquiry, (LOI). We know it is time consuming submitting a grant application. We want to simplify the task and make it easier to apply.
The selection committee will review the submissions and those meeting the criteria will be invited to submit a complete grant proposal further detailing the information provided in the Letter of Inquiry.
We have made it even simpler, instead of writing the letter; we are providing you a PDF fillable form, outlining the information that the Committee will need. Please be brief, but ensure that your answers give concrete answers to the questions outlined.
