Grant Programs

The Foundation offers several grant programs to support nonprofits working in our community. Deadlines and program guidelines vary.

Arlington Education Fund Grants

Education Fund Grants provide up to $1,500 to educators in Arlington to support innovative or unique projects that supplement and enrich the learning environment for preschool to adult students in Arlington. This program is not currently accepting applications.

STEM Workforce Development Teacher Fellowships

The STEM Workforce Development Teacher Fellowship provides Arlington Public Schools high school, middle school and elementary school teachers with opportunities to learn about work place needs in STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math)-related fields and for them to use the experience to enhance student learning to match workplace expectations in a selected industry. STEM Fellows participate in a three-week summer fellowship, receiving up to $4,000 stipend upon completion.

The Summer 2021 cycle is now closed. Check back soon for updates, or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to receive updates as they happen.

Community Impact Grants

The Community Impact Grant Program seeks to build partnerships for a better Arlington. Launched in 2016, this grant program initially awarded 2 grants, now totaling $185,000, to enable nonprofit organizations to do something significantly better through collaboration in ongoing programs. The funding priorities of the first round included several focus areas concerning Early Childhood or Older Youth.
