Student Grant Application

The School District 145 Foundation for Education supports a Student Grant Program for WHS students. The purpose of the Student Grant Program is  to provide financial assistance for unique and innovative learning and  leadership opportunities for students or school organizations, not otherwise available through School District 145 or other resources. The maximum grant  amount is $250 per individual or organization. Matching funds or funds from  other sources are encouraged. A limited and equal amount of grant funds will be available each quarter of the school year. The School District 145  Foundation for Education Grants Committee will determine the award amount  and reserves the right to reject or deny any application for any lawful  reason. Upon receipt of the on-line application and complete signature form,  the Grants Committee requires a minimum of 10 working days to review the  application and make a decision. The Grants Committee will notify the 
student and the teacher/sponsor of its decision. 

Applicants must be a high school student within School District 145,  applying on behalf of themselves or on behalf of an organization to which they belong. Applications are accepted during the school year. For an application to be considered, a signature form (below) must be completed; it can be uploaded with the application or emailed to grants@dist145ffe.org.

Recommendation: Prepare a draft of the student grant application from this Google Form for the applicant's sponsor to review.
