Tips for Applying for Grants

Learn a little more about the APS policy, grant opportunities and where you can get help.

Do you know the APS Policy & Procedure for applying for grants? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  • Is the grant for less than $5,000?
  • Is it only for your school?
  • Do you NOT need central office support?

Then, go for it! You don't need pre-approval to apply for grants that fit this criteria.

And don't forget that the APS Education Foundation has several grants including the Horizon Award. Teachers, principals and educational assistants may apply for Horizon, a competitive award which grants awards of between $1,500 (single classroom) and $5,000 (team approach, including multiple schools). Submission areas are limited to: STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), Fine Arts and Literacy.
