Grants Support Students

Oakwood Schools Foundation (“OSF”) Grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional programs and ideas in education. Teachers, principals and school administrators can apply for grants to fund projects that benefit individual classrooms or their entire school.

OSF offers schools and specific departments the opportunity to apply for grants to support innovative programs or projects that promote higher levels of student learning and academic success. To be considered, grant proposals must enhance student academic performance and support the stated objectives, goals and initiatives of Oakwood Schools.

OSF awards grants annually in the fall and spring. Fall grants support projects or programs in the current calendar school year, while spring grants support projects or programs in the current school year or the following school year.
