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, 2022 and June 31, 2023. If you were awarded a Teacher Grant in the past but were unable to complete your grant due to the pandemic, you are eligible to reapply.

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.
