The Grant Submission form is to be completed by any staff planning to apply for a grant. The only grants that do not need preapproval through the Grant Submission form are ABC Grants and Discovery Grants. All other grants should have a Grant Submission form sent to Federal Programs so approval can be given by the Superintendent.
The Great Falls Public Schools (GFPS) Foundation is encouraging innovative and creative projects in GFPS through the Discovery Grants Program.

Great Falls Public Schools employees can submit applications for funding ranging from $500 to $3000. This year, the Foundation will be accepting grant applications through a new online program. You can find the application HERE or through the Foundation’s webpage at http://www.gfpsfoundation.org/discovery-grants/. Discovery Grants are open until January 27, 2017.
