Calls for proposals for both Teacher and Collaborative Grants are distributed in December. Brookline’s Office of Teaching and Learning offers 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 funding. Applicants are notified of decisions in late April. Grant awards are announced to the public at the BEF’s annual “Celebrating Teachers” event in May.
See the Grants Calendar for workshops, deadlines and other important dates.
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 or personal development activities. They are not intended to provide curricular materials or fund classroom programs that the school department and PTOs support.
