Grants & Scholarships

The Foundation for Douglas County Schools offers a variety of grant and scholarship opportunities to Douglas County teachers and students. 

Our grant awards drive experiential learning and invest in our teachers by helping make their ideas reality. Each year, educators from all Douglas County Schools are invited to propose an idea that will open new doors for our students. 

The Foundation partners with community stakeholders to award scholarships to DCSD graduating high school seniors in the name of their corporation, organization, school/youth group or in memory/honor of an individual. Scholarships support students in pursuing a range of post-secondary opportunities, including college and vocational programs.

The Foundation raises money through corporate and community donations to bring great ideas to life. Grants are awarded to teachers whose requests have the potential to make the greatest impact in the classroom. 



Awarded annually based on the criteria established by each scholarship fund's donors, Foundation scholarships help students make their dreams come true.



Teachers applying for a grant to support programming within their school can seek grant-writing support and assistance from the Foundation.
