Since its inception in 2001, the Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation (HSSF) has served the Hamilton Southeastern Schools community by supplementing state and local funding to support innovative programs that enhance its students’ educational growth. As part of its mission, HSSF offers grants that enable and honor exemplary, innovative teaching and learning.
The HSSF grants committee (Committee) reviews each grant application it receives. The Committee may request additional information from the applicant, school administrators, or curriculum coordinators. Applications chosen for funding by the Committee are then recommended to the Foundation’s board of directors for approval.
The Committee uses a combination of objective and subjective criteria when evaluating grant applications. Applications that clearly meet more criteria will generally be viewed more favorably during evaluation. In some instances HSSF is not able to fund all requests due to budgetary constraints. This does not mean that a rejected application is inappropriate or unsatisfactory.
