To enhance education by promoting academic excellence, championing innovation, and providing sustained financial support to public schools within the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.
The Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System is seeking proposals from educators in elementary, middle and high schools in East Baton Rouge Parish School System to implement high-quality, innovative STEM programs.
Funding to support projects in classrooms, across grade levels or even school-wide is available through a generous grant from ExxonMobil. Grants will be made available to classroom teachers or to schools. Grant awards may range from $250-$10,000 per project. Projects must be innovative and have potential for replication in other schools in East Baton Rouge Parish School System. Projects should focus on increasing student interest and engagement in STEM.
