Sewell / Samuel Educator Grants
Cathy Sewell Educator Grant
Jennifer Samuel Educator Grant
The Everman ISD Education Foundation Board of Directors has authorized the Cathy Sewell Educator Grant and the Jennifer Samuel Educator Grant distribution program that will award competitive one-year grants to EISD educators in partial fulfillment of the Foundation Mission and Goals Statement. The first year of such awards was the 2015-2016 school year.
Educators will secure campus principal approval before submitting an application. Once the project has principal approval, the educator will complete an online application and submit by May 31, 2018, for consideration in the next school year.
Cathy Sewell and Jennifer Samuel will select one grant for award purposes, based on merit, potential for research, and transferability. Their selections will be ratified by the EISD Education Foundation Board of Directors.
Projects will begin no later than October 1, 2018, and conclude no later than May 1, 2019. Final reports and evaluations are due on May 28, 2019.
Funds will be awarded based on project merit in the amount of $1,000. Grants in excess of this amount will not be considered for funding. Grants may be submitted for funding in the second year for an additional $1,000 if the project has merit and is deemed significant to student learning.
