Applications for FY25 Teacher Grants are now closed.

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

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 of the year the grant is awarded and June 31 of the following year.

See the Grants Calendar for workshops, deadlines, and other important dates.

See the FAQ’s page for answers to some questions you may have … but also feel free to reach out to us with questions at any time!

Apply for Teacher Grants

BEF Teacher Grants are awarded to individual and small groups of teachers or administrators on the basis of short written proposals. Teacher grants award up to $3,000 for each individual and typically fund professional development or renewal activities. They are not intended to provide curricular materials or fund classroom programs that the school department and PTOs support.
