FEF Grant Programs
The newest grant program for Falmouth teachers began on November 11, 2020, In response to the unusual challenges and demands placed on teachers during the Covid 19 epidemic, FEF launched Access Grants, specifically to address the needs that have emerged as a result of the Covid-based learning models. These grants are for the 2020-21 academic year only, include requests from $301 to $2500, and support supplies, equipment, and training that enhance instruction and promote equity.

The application deadline for both new project grants and the continuing project grants is April 1, 2021. Grants are awarded in mid-May.
Teacher Opportunity Mini-Grants
Mini-grants are awarded on a rolling basis to help cover the cost of unexpected educational opportunities that impact learning. Applications are reviewed and grants awarded throughout the school year, September 1 through May 15 and are limited to $300 per grant. Given the challenges facing our students this spring and summer, however, mini grants were available to teachers throughout the summer. Click here for the mini-grant application.
Ellen Barol Student Impact Grants

The grants will be awarded on a rolling basis awarded throughout the school year and are up to $300.

On occasion and depending on available resources, FEF may consider a third type of request outside the normal grant cycle. FEF Partnership Grants serve an identified need, have broad impact, are supported and promoted by the Superintendent of Schools, and include some form of “partnership contribution” from the FPS.
