Individual Schools Grants Program

The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation’s Individual Schools Grant Program supports improvement and enhancement efforts in Kansas City-area district, charter, and private schools that demonstrate proven or promising academic and life outcomes while serving a significant percentage of lower-income students. School leaders are invited to apply for a grant of up to $225,000 per year, which will support initiatives that take place within an individual school or set of schools.

Applications for 2018 Individual Schools Grants will open on January 2, and the deadline to apply is February 1 at 11:59 p.m.
