2018 Summer Fellows
Since 2012, we've granted Summer Teacher Fellowships to encourage BUSD teachers to aspire to the highest levels of professionalism and creativity in their field. The fellowships serve to broaden teacher personal and professional experiences, and to pursue professional development opportunities beyond those that normal budgets and time may allow.
Strategic Impact Grants
In the 2017-18 school year, we have awarded over $250,000 in Strategic Impact Grants! These larger grants serve students on a grade, department, school, inter-district, or District level in various areas: STEM, Arts, Language Arts and Student Support.
2017-18 Classroom Grants
Berkeley teachers submitted 355 Classroom Grants this year! We funded 327 grants totaling over $250,000. There were lots of field trips, a growing number of science grants, and, like every year, art, music and dance.
We learn so much when we review these grants every year. It gives us ideas for even bigger ways to support the educational experience of Berkeley students.
