Grants can be made directly to schools, to independent organizations involved with the issues, or to qualifying teachers or researchers.
The Foundation is open to supporting both new and ongoing programs. Priority consideration will be given to schools, programs, and individuals who address the need for originality of teaching styles and stimulating course presentation.
The application requests the following information:
The name and mission of the organization
Name, address and phone number of contact person
