  • Program Grants - fund the exploration and implementation of innovative approaches to teaching, the creation of educational materials, and the piloting of new technology in the classroom.
  • Fellowships - fund structured professional development opportunities for individual faculty members to deepen their subject-area knowledge and strengthen their skills in ways that will have a direct impact on their teaching.
  • School Community Grants - fund activities created collaboratively within each Lexington public school to strengthen the overall learning environment and build community school-wide.

All grant proposals undergo a rigorous application and approval process. Grantees are expected to share the results of their grant experiences with their colleagues within and across their schools.
