Welcome PUSD Teachers & Principals!
We invite you to take your creative projects from idea to reality with a PEF Teacher Grant.
Our Selection Process:
Each applicant must submit a proposal using the form below that follows the guidelines outlined here. All grant proposals are screened for basic requirements and reviewed by the PEF Grants Committee. Proposals not funded may be resubmitted for consideration in a future year. Grant recipients will be notified in late November.
Samples of previously funded proposals are available for review in the PEF office (Room 153, Education Center) or online here.
In addition to our regular grants, PEF offers these special awards:
Jarrat Brunson Memorial Award for Literacy
Honoring the late Jarratt Brunson, the PEF founder who initiated the Teacher Grant Program, this award will go to the proposal that best reflects Jarratt's passion for reading and early literacy.
Kathy Onoye Principal Award
Honoring Kathy Onoye, who throughout her career as a Principal of Willard Elementary School and most recently as the Executive Director of Elementary Education for the PUSD, has been an outstanding role model and mentor for principals, this award will go to the PUSD Administrator whose proposal best exemplifies their role in inspiring leadership.
Calvin Hunt Award for Arts Education
Founded by a PUSD Board member in memory of Calvin Hunt who, as Director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, took dancers all over the world as cultural ambassadors. This award promotes and supports dedicated teachers enhancing arts education in PUSD.
