We award grants up to $2,500 to staff and students for innovative projects that are not funded by the school district. The grant application outlines types of requests the Foundation may approve and the application process. The Foundation awards grants in January, March, and October of each year.
Funding for grants comes from the Education Foundation Endowment Fund, the Cocica-Holmstrom Family Science Fund, or the Elementary School Fund supported by the Community Foundation for Marquette County.
The MAPS Makerspace is a place for people to explore, invent, collaborate, tinker, play, create, and experiment! See what they are up to here:
The Education Foundation is administering a grant fund to help support our students' efforts at the Makerspace. You can contribute by visiting our Donation Page, selecting Grants, and selecting the Makerspace fund.
