Since 1995, the Paramus Education Foundation has been providing funding for teachers and students to explore their passion. Over $500,000 has been given to projects and proposals to help create innovative projects and programs for the students of the Paramus School Districts. 

Applications are available and must be submitted in the spring of the school year. All applicaitons will be reviewed and awards will be made for the upcoming school year. 

What Is A Grant & Who Makes The Decision?

Teachers and their students apply for grants each year. Grants applications for projects are reviewed by a teacher’s principal, school department supervisor, and the superintendent or assistant superintendent of schools, and then reviewed and approved by the Education Foundation’s Board of Trustees. The Foundation awards grants to applicants whose projects are exceptional, innovative, original, and which clearly enhance the quality of education in Paramus schools.
