The Elmbrook Education Foundation (previously the Lancer-Spartan Scholarship Fund) supports the community's value on continuing education by sustaining and enhancing its Scholarship Program. Today, approximately 1 out of every 40 of our graduating seniors receives an EEF administered scholarship donated by area businesses and individuals wishing to recognize them for their accomplishments and help them pursue a post-secondary education. The Foundation's scholarship committee matches recipients to the specific criteria of its donors. Recipients show a commitment to their education, a sincere desire to serve others, and/or the ability to overcome challenges in an effort to reach personal goals. To date, the Foundation has administered over $1,000,000 in merit and need-based scholarships to nearly 1,000 students planning to attend either a University or Technical School.
Scholarship applications are due by March 28, 2014. Read more on our scholarships page or fill out the appropriate application:
The 2013-2014 Innovation Grant applications are now available. All applications must be submitted by February 28th, 2014 at 4pm to be considered. If you have an idea that has the potential to affect change in the District (or are requesting funding to bring a successful idea from one school to another) within one of the Foundation's areas of interest: Innovative Instruction, Teaching Excellence, and/or Continuing Education, please apply to the Foundation for either full or partial funding (the Foundation loves to partner on projects with other grantors). Foundation grant programs are open to parents, staff, administrators, and students.
Ladies' Night was a great time last night. We will all be jealous when the winner of the Cabo San Lucas trip is sunning in Mexico while we all deal with the cold and snow! There were so many great raffle and auction items won and the new electronic bidding system was so much fun to use. Thank you for your support and we look forward to next year!
