Annual Grants Awards
Since its founding in 1992, the Naperville Education
Foundation has awarded nearly 900 grants representing
over $1,000,000 in support of creative, innovative and
excellent projects that stimulate student engagement
and learning experiences. NEF awards up to 50 grants
each year to teachers, staff, students and community
members, in a variety of disciplines and grade levels.
The committees evaluating the grant requests are made
up of representatives from the Foundation, District 203
staff and our community.

Applications are due on February 1st of each year and
award decisions are announced by the end of March.
Grant recipients will be recognized at NEF events and
in publicity. Your support provides funding for new
projects in the categories of Cultural Studies, Fine Arts,
General, Health & Physical Development, Literacy and
Math & Science.
