Bang #7 Educational Project Award


It is extremely likely that you or someone you know has had a fantastic idea for a project involving your chapter or state organization, but had trouble obtaining the funding necessary to help the project succeed.  The answer to all your problems may be found by applying for the Educational Project Award.  The DKG International Educators Foundation provides monies which support projects designed to address intercultural understanding, encourage standards of excellence in education, or assist and cooperate with various funds in support of the improvement of education. 

For 2020-2021, eleven (11) first-time projects were accepted and $36,365.00 (USD) was awarded to various state organizations.  Three projects totaling $13,635.00 (USD) were renewed for the year.  For more information, you can visit the DKG website.  From the Home page, look to the far right of the black banner and click on DKGIEF before scrolling to Educational Projects.  Tabs labeled Apply, Recipients, Mid-Year Form and Year-End Form will give you access to further information about the grant process.  Click on Recipients to peruse the various projects which have been approved.  You will surely be amazed to discover that you have had very similar ideas, but just didn’t know where to turn for assistance in getting those projects off the ground.   

The application process is simple and all documents are filed electronically no later than January 3.  Applications are available online. Any further documents required are also easily accessible.  If not completed after one year, your project is eligible for a one-time renewal. 

Even though the deadline is still almost a year away, don’t hesitate to begin putting together the details of your great idea for a project.  DKG may be able to assist you in seeing your dreams become a reality.
