Grant Application

The Hopkinton Education Foundation (HEF) provides grant funding, ideas, and professional development to help Hopkinton educators deliver innovative educational experiences that inspire students to strive for excellence and become lifelong learners.
Grant applications are welcome from any Hopkinton school system professional staff member including teachers, administrators, librarians, specialists, guidance counselors, occupational and physical therapists, technologists, coaches, etc. Collaboration across classrooms, grades, and schools is highly encouraged.

Hopkinton educators are encouraged to write grants for projects that develop students’ critical thinking skills, support innovative teaching methods, have a direct and immediate impact on the largest number of students, and are not funded through the School Department budget.
Prior to submission, grant applicants are highly encouraged to consult with their school liaison(s), listed on grant application.
