SPSEF grants are designed to provide funding for projects that increase learning opportunities for students and reward the creative initiative of teachers.

SPSEF grants are funded by generous contributions of the Springdale Public Schools employees who elect to support the Foundation via a district payroll deduction, donations from private individuals, and contributions from corporate partners. 
SPSEF’s mission is to promote and support excellence in education. One of the ways in which we accomplish this is by attracting private and philanthropic funds to sustain and expand educational programs that fall outside the Springdale Public Schools’ normal operating budget.

Applying for Grants:

The Springdale Public Schools Education Foundation Board of Directors will accept requests for the Fall grant cycle from October 1st through December 1st.  Requests for the Spring Grant Cycle will be accepted from March 1st through May 1st.

Grants are awarded based on the quality and originality of the projects/programs. Teachers who apply for a grant may be asked to explain their project/program to the Directors prior to the awarding of the grant. The grant money will be distributed and coordinated by SPSEF. All grant awards will be announced on the Foundation’s Facebook page.

1.  To see the specific criteria for the open grant cycle, click on the grant application link to read the eligibility, criteria, and guidelines for applying.
