SEED Opens Spring Grant Period
The Seacoast Educational Endowment of Dover (SEED) a non-profit organization that promotes academic excellence by providing teaching grants to Dover educators, is now accepting applications for its spring grant period. SEED will fund up to $5,000 in grant awards for projects to be implemented across the Dover school district.
SEED grants are intended for educators of Dover public school students. SEED is looking for innovative programs, practices, or resources for any students in any grades in any Dover public school. Grant making core categories include instructional learning, instructional innovation, or professional development.
Instructional programs or projects are new or innovative units and address Common Core Standards or 21st century skills or themes such as blended learning courses which offer a blend of face to face interaction as well as virtual learning experiences. Instructional innovation proposals will include the use of new tools, techniques, or technology. Professional development requests should provide opportunities for Dover educators to learn about new tools and techniques or address best practices to increase instructional effectiveness and provide for engaging learning experiences for their students.
Successful proposals will be based on SEED’s existing grant evaluation criteria and will be reviewed in early May by the grant making committee. Applications for the spring grant period will be accepted until May 1, 2014. To learn more or download a grant application, please visit the SEED website at www.doverseed.org.
