The Irving Schools Foundation awards money through 3 main programs: Scholarships, Programs Committee Grants, and Educator Enrichment Grants.
Scholarships are awarded every April to Irving ISD seniors, teachers and staff at the annual Breakfast With the Stars. Scholarships awarded currently range from $1000 to $8000. Applications for seniors are online and open in November. Teacher applications are on paper and must be turned in to the ISF office. Visit our Scholarships tab for more information.
Programs Committee Grants are awarded each month at Programs Committee Meetings. The process begins with a two page application and budget requirements being submitted to ISF. The applicant is then scheduled on the next available monthly Programs Committee agenda for a live presentation to the Committee. The applicant has 7 minutes to present their idea/need, the committee has 3 minutes for Q&A, excuses the applicant from the room and deliberates for 3-5 minutes. The request can be granted in full, in part, denied or tabled. The committee informs the applicant of their final decision. Go to our PCG page here for more information.
Educator Enrichment Grants (EEG) are professional development grants provided for seminars, workshops and conferences not funded by the Irving Independent School District. Decisions are based on the quality of the application submitted by the teacher or paraprofessional, the content of the seminar, and the impact for students and other teachers. EEG awards are granted monthly. These grants can be awarded up to $1,000. For more information, visit our EEG page here.
