DEF Grants, Scholarships & Reimbursements

Thanks to a generous capacity-building grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation in June 2016,
all of our Grants, Reimbursements and/or Scholarships will now be processed through a new, online
portal. Please CLICK HERE to access the portal.

Initially, you will need to create an account and a profile. Then, your information will automatically
be saved for all future applications, regardless of the DEF program you are applying under. If you are
a DCS' employee, we recommend using your DCS' email name as your Username on our system, so that
it is easy for you to remember. But, that is not mandatory.

It is highly recommended that you read the guidelines for the specific program you are interested in
applying for funds under. Not adhering to the guidelines could delay your funds, or may even result
in your application being excluded from consideration.

================================================================================================ For the 2016-2017 School Year, the deadlines are as follows:

Classroom Grants

The Spring 2017 application period for Dare Education Foundation classroom grants will be open beginning Monday, November 28, 2016. PLEASE NOTE: There are 2 steps to this process and both must be completed by the deadline noted below.

First, you will submit a Letter of Intent with a brief description of your grant request. Then, if this LOI meets all of our requirements, you will be asked to submit a full grant application. PLEASE NOTE: The full grant application must be submitted by no later than 11:59p on Tuesday, January 17, 2017, so submit your LOI today!

If we have any funds remaining after this round, we will have a Summer 2017 Grants Process. Please check back on this page after 2/15/17 to determine if we have any funds remaining.
