application information + process

  • The SEF grant application process is open to all SPS Teachers and Administrators, as well as representatives of tax-exempt, Scituate-based community groups that present a compelling, education-focused proposal. Organizations that are not a part of Scituate Public Schools must have all necessary documentation to demonstrate 501(c)3 tax-exempt status, including a current board of directors and signed by-laws. These documents do not need to be included as part of an application but may be requested by SEF.

  • This application must be completed and submitted online anytime from March 1, 2017 until 11:59 PM on March 31, 2017. After that time it will become inaccessible online.  You may print the application as a working document here.

  • Grant applications are welcome in all academic areas and art disciplines, including but not limited to visual arts, music, and physical/health/wellness education. 

  • SPS-based applications must be for initiatives that are outside of the district’s current and planned operating budgets.

  • Proposals must seek funding to cover a period of time not greater than one year. Multi-year projects require re-application each year.

  • Technology requests must include a detailed implementation plan and assurance of compatibility within district. Technology purchases from SEF funds are for use of the applicant(s) during the award year and become the property of SPS or the sponsoring organization thereafter.

  • Applications may not request funding for teacher salaries or bonuses.
