Each year The Education Foundation of Baltimore County Public Schools, Inc. provides schools and offices/departments with an opportunity to apply for instructional initiative grants to fund innovative projects not funded in the school budget. Projects must address an identified need that is aligned with Baltimore County Public Schools goals for academics and key actions as stated in the BCPS Blueprint 2.0:  Our Way Forward and the school progress plans.  The project must have clear measurable objectives, and overall impact and potential for successful implementation.

Project funds may not replace normal funding from tax-based sources. The proposal should describe a quantitative and/or qualitative method to evaluate the success of the project. Funds may cover travel, participation in events/activities, consulting fees, and speaker honorariums. Funds may not cover personnel or any related expenses for BCPS staff, including gift cards and food/beverages.  If food is purchased for students, it must align with USDA health regulations.  Projects must be conducted and supervised by BCPS professional personnel who work directly with students, including teachers, school counselors, media specialists, nurses, etc…
