Arlington Community Foundation is now accepting grant requests up to $1,500 from our Prompt Response Fund. Grants may be awarded to support a time-sensitive, unanticipated opportunity or need that would be difficult for an organization to address without a prompt response grant. Eligible grantees are 501(c)(3) or publicly supported organizations serving Arlington residents. Prompt response grants are not meant to support political or religious activities. Neither are they meant to be awarded for general operating support or to start new programs. Any grant amounts awarded should be committed or expended expeditiously and, at the latest, within 3 months of the date of the award.
Examples of Prompt Response Fund grants made in recent years include:

Beginning this year, the program will now be referred to as the STEAM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Arts/Math) Fellowship Program to include the arts. Applicants planning to pursue a fellowship in the arts must demonstrate how they will build connections between the arts and science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
The STEAM 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 STEAM-related fields and for them to use the experience to enhance student learning to match workplace expectations in a selected industry. STEAM Fellows participate in a three-week summer fellowship, receiving up to $4,000 stipend upon completion.
The Summer 2023 cycle is now closed. Click the button below to sign up for future STEAM updates.
