Grants/Awards

Family Involvement Grants - School Principal and/or Assistant Principal Must Be a Member of MAESP

Each year, MAESP awards six Family Involvement Grants, each in the amount of $500.  The grants are intended for schools that wish to create and implement programs and activities that encourage families to become more involved in school and their children’s education. The money must be used for a project(s) that will involve as many families from the school community as possible and should have a direct impact on students.  Recipients of the awards are expected to share the results of their project with the MAESP membership with a poster display at the Annual Principals' Conference in Cambridge, MD.  For more information contact Tess Blumenthal at [email protected]
