The Ames Education Foundation annually awards funds to teachers throughout the Ames Community School District for educational needs in the classroom. Teachers apply for the Innovation Grants which are then reviewed by a committee comprised of Foundation trustees, teachers, and administrators. This has a positive impact on our students.

There are two applications: 
1.The Ames Education Foundation Innovation Grant, and
2. The Ames Education Foundation Finn/Milleman Innovation Grant
  • Ames Education Foundation Innovation Grant deadline for FALL, is November 28, each year.
  • Ames Education Foundation Finn/Milleman Grant deadline for Fall, is December 4, each year.
These may be submitted via a hard copy through inter-office mail to the Ames Education Foundation office.
(Applications sent to teachers via staff email.)
