About the Program


The City of Hyattsville’s Education Enrichment Grant Program is an annual grant opportunity in support of Hyattsville’s public schools, students, and community. Grants of up to $500 are available to fund programming and activities that enhance and enrich student opportunities and education. Past grant recipients have expanded STEM learning, promoted cultural sensitivity and inclusivity, and supported academic and student development.

Special notice for the 2020-21 grant period: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person activities and events are strongly discouraged. Suggested safe alternatives include, but are not limited to, virtual guest speakers, online programming, and materials for special at-home student projects. If you do propose any in-person programming, including in-person pick up of materials or drive through events, please indicate in the application how staff, students, volunteers, and community members will be adequately protected from virus exposure. Grants are not intended to fund items that are normally provided by Prince George’s County Public Schools, such as copier paper, staffing, etc. 

Eligibility


The grant program is open to public elementary, middle, and high schools that have attendance boundaries within the City of Hyattsville. Those schools include Bladensburg High, Northwestern Evening High, Northwestern High, Hyattsville Middle, Nicholas Orem Middle, William Wirt Middle, Felegy Elementary, Hyattsville Elementary, Rogers Heights Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary, and University Park Elementary. Applications are welcome from eligible schools and school principals, teachers, staff, students, community members and parent-teacher organizations are eligible to apply. There is no limit to the number of applications schools and organizations may submit, but all applications must be independent of each other (i.e., a school cannot submit two $500 applications for the same project).
