We know the past month has been challenging, but we also know distance learning may have sparked new ideas. Therefore, we are extending our spring grant deadline to May 1. You can submit your idea anytime between now and the deadline, and we’ll move quickly to review your application. Whether your project is for distance learning or the traditional classroom, we look forward to hearing your innovative ideas.

  • Please submit your completed application to your principal anytime between now and May 1.
  • Principals will review and upload applications to the YEF Spring Grants Folder.
  • We ask that principals and/or applicants please email us at to alert us when a grant proposal is submitted.
