SEF Grant Applications are now open! This is a great opportunity to apply for a grant provided by the Somerville Education Foundation, which provides funding for all types of creative and innovative educational programs and activities that are above and beyond the programs supported by general education money.

You can apply for several different levels of grant money this year, so take advantage of this great opportunity! Applications will be open now through October 13, 2023, and will be handled electronically, which we hope makes your grant application experience a little easier! 

We will have a grant application workshop on Tuesday, September 12, at 3:45 in the Elementary Cafeteria if you have any questions about grant ideas or need help completing the application. Of course, feel free to contact us anytime if you have questions outside of grant workshop times.
