FY25 Collaborative grant applications were available from December 4 through March 4! Please scroll down for more information, and feel free to reach out to or with any questions.

Calls for proposals for both Teacher and Collaborative Grants are distributed in December. The BEF, in partnership with the Office of Teaching and Learning, will offer grant writing workshops prior to the filing deadline for teachers who wish to apply. BEF Teacher and Collaborative Grants Committees, which consist of Brookline educators and BEF Board members, determine all funding. Applicants are notified of decisions in mid-April. All work associated with these grants should take place between July 1, 2024 and June 31, 2025.

Apply for Collaborative Grants

BEF Collaborative Grants are designed to promote cooperative efforts across disciplines, across grade levels, and among schools. This category of grants enables the BEF to bring the core value of Collaborative Relationships to the forefront by promoting opportunities for professional teamwork and cooperative learning throughout Brookline. Collaborative Grants are funded up to $20,000 per grant. Applicants seeking funding for projects with budgets $8,000 or above are required to submit a Concept Paper to assess how well their proposal fits within the BEF grants program. If the application budget is under $8,000, the concept paper is optional but encouraged as it typically helps with the success of the grant.
