The WEDF Mini Grant program enhances and enriches  teaching and learning in the Worcester Public Schools.

As of April 15, we are no longer accepting Mini Grant proposals for Spring 2022

The Application Process

Mini-grant applicants must clearly show innovation and creativity in the projects they propose. And, they must explain how financial support will lead to the project’s success.

Applicants provide WEDF with a two-page application that is  approved by the building principal or immediate supervisor.  The application must clearly state a learning need, describe how that need will be met and evaluated, and include a line item budget.

When the next round of Mini-grant funding is announced, applicants will be able to download an application form from this site. The Executive Director can provide technical assistance in the application process.
