The Kauffman Foundation has launched its next round of Individual Schools Grants, and initial applications are now available for schools to apply. The Individual Schools Grant Program supports improvement and enhancement efforts in Kansas City-area district, charter or private schools demonstrating proven or promising academic results while serving a significant percentage of lower-income students.
Since the program launched last June, we’ve awarded more than $2 million in Individual Schools Grants to eight schools. Grantees include three district schools, three charter schools and two private schools serving low-income students. Visit the Individual Schools Grants page to learn more about previously awarded grants.
