Dear Winfield Teachers,


The Winfield Community Foundation is now seeking proposals for our annual round of scholarship grants. Grant amounts up to $250.00 will be considered.


The criteria for judging proposals include the following:  

  • A successful project involves students in a dynamic unit of study with student activities.  All materials, equipment, and professional development must support the unit of study.


  • Proposals that demonstrate positive impact on the school community as well as the Winfield community as a whole and show true innovation are given top consideration.


  • The project must demonstrate thorough planning.  The activities and budget must be specific and well thought out.      


  • Cost-effectiveness is critical.  The grant committee judges the proposal on the total amount requested, as well as the cost per student.  


  • Proposals are to be a two page typed document, in Word, responding to the grant requirements stated on the following page.  Only complete proposals will be considered.


Other aspects to consider:

  • Applicants may only apply for one grant per round. Either as an individual or grade level.


  • Applicants must be current staff at a licensed school/preschool within Winfield Township


  • Projects involving college credit, salaries, incentives, stipends, food, travel or registration fees are not allowed.​


  • During your project take pictures or video and send to the social media director Jeff Baird at, to help bring recognition to you and your students.  This allows us the opportunity to share your success with others through various media sources.
