GRANT APPLICATIONS

The Foundation invites all applications for innovative and creative educational programming! 

 

 

MAJOR GRANT APPLICATION

Annually, The Royal Educational Foundation (REF) invites all teachers and other interested parties to apply for a major project grant if you are requesting over $1,000. The major grant program, similar to the mini-grant, embodies the Foundation’s mission to promote excellence, support opportunities that enhance teaching and prepare students to become tomorrow’s leaders. 

Projects may be for single or multiple classrooms, interdisciplinary and, multi-grade, or school-wide. The Foundation’s goal is to support a wide range of educational interests and creativity.

Grant money cannot be used: 

 

  • to supplement salary; 

  • to purchase equipment otherwise available from the district; or 

  • to pay for the cost of bus transportation. 

 

Before an applicant can be awarded money for a major grant, they are required to make a presentation to the Royal Educational Foundation identifying the purpose, goals/objectives, and anticipated outcome of the grant. 

The application is simple, and it can be found at the Foundation’s website www.pjref.org or from any school building principal. There is no deadline; however, applicants should anticipate a minimum of 90 days before receiving grant approval. 

 

Each project must be approved by the principal of the building in which it will take place before submission to the Foundation. The major grants are for projects in excess of $1,000.  If your project is under $1,000, then you should be completing the mini-grant application, which can also be found on the Foundation's website. 

 

Please forward all questions to The Royal Educational Foundation at: www.pjref.org 

 

 

 

MINI GRANT APPLICATION 

In 1994, through the efforts of many concerned community members and with the support and encouragement of then Superintendent Dr. Wayne A. Jones, the Royal Educational Foundation was created. To acknowledge his many contributions to the Foundation, following Dr. Jones’ passing, the Foundation’s mini-grant program was named in his honor. 

 

Semi-annually, The Royal Educational Foundation (REF) invites all teachers and other interested parties to apply for the mini-grants in a sum not to exceed $500. The mini-grant program embodies the Foundation’s mission to promote excellence, support opportunities that enhance teaching and prepare students to become tomorrow’s leaders. 

Projects may be for single or multiple classrooms, interdisciplinary and, multi-grade, or school-wide. The Foundation’s goal is to support a wide range of educational interests and creativity. Applicants must be accessible either by phone or via the Internet to answer questions that may be posed by the Foundation in connection with grant request. Grant money cannot be used: 

 

  • to supplement salary; 

  • to purchase equipment otherwise available from the district; or 

  • to pay for the cost of bus transportation. 

 

All applicants awarded a mini grant will be required to submit captioned photos taken during the course of their project upon completion and must answer a short evaluation form. 

 

The application is simple, and can be found on the Foundation’s website www.pjref.org or from any school building principal. Deadlines for submission are June 1 and January 19. Mini-grant award recipients will be announced at either the Superintendent's Conference in September (if submitted in June) or a building faculty meeting in January (if submitted in December) by The Royal Educational Foundation.

 

Each project must be approved by the principal of the building in which it will take place before submission to the Foundation. Mini grants are for short-term projects only. If your project is a long-term one, there is a different application which can also be found on the website.
