SEED Fall Grant Period Now Open

SEED Fall Grant Period Now Open

The Seacoast Educational Endowment of Dover (SEED) a non-profit organization that promotes academic excellence by providing innovation grants to Dover educators, is now accepting applications for its fall grant period. SEED has added a brand new special health education category and earmarked up to $5,000 in grant awards for health education projects to be implemented across the Dover school district.

The health education category is designed for faculty in health, science, physical education educators, biotechnology and culinary arts programs across the Dover district. Dover public school’s educators and staff are encouraged to submit competitive proposals with a goal of improving health education, and possibly health outcomes, for students in Dover’s schools.

In addition to the healthcare category, SEED is currently accepting applications for other education grants to address “hot ideas” budgeted at the $100 to $500 level.  SEED’s overarching goals are to create a legacy for educational excellence in Dover Public Schools and to advocate the value of education in the community and ensure our students are college and career ready upon graduation. Successful proposals will be based on SEED’s existing grant evaluation criteria and will be reviewed by the grant application committee. Applications for the fall grant period will be accepted until December 1, 2013. More information and the application can be found on the SEED website at www.doverseed.org.
