Guidelines for Grant Applicants 

Everyone serving within Rock Hill Schools is welcome to apply for a RHSEF Grant. Applications are accepted online, and reviewed three times a year at the close of each grant cycle. The RHSEF Grant Review committee meets at the close of each cycle to grade applications submitted before the deadline, and grants will be awarded by a surprise visit from the Grant Patrol in the weeks following. 

The purpose of RHSEF Educator Grants is to fund innovative initiatives that align with the educational needs and pursuits of Rock Hill Schools. 

While grant award selection is competitive, the application process is strategically designed with educators in mind. Online submission for applicants is simplified, and the following guidelines will help optimize success for proposals.

  • Ensure the proposed project aligns with the Rock Hill Schools Strategic Plan
  • Grant proposals should be INNOVATIVE and not a repetitive request or previously funded project
  • Funding should serve students and/or educators within Rock Hill Schools

As a general rule, the following requests do not receive funding when presented in isolation:

  • Classroom sets of books
  • Live animals
  • Furniture
  • Field Trips

However, fresh perspectives and original proposals are always appreciated and each submitted application will be considered. 

Applicants are encouraged to attend a brief informational session via Zoom prior to grant submission. Deadlines and session dates are included below:

Should you have any questions about the process or wish to sign-up for a Zoom informational session, please reach out to:
