The foundation is pleased to offer a Teacher Grant Program for faculty at Nickajack. This program allows teachers to apply for funding for curriculum enhancements, STEAM-focused equipment and supplies, and professional development opportunities.

In order to be awarded funding, teachers are required to submit a grant application. Once grant applications have been received, a grant committee comprised of Foundation Board Members will read and score the applications based on a rubric.     

Applications are evaluated based on the following considerations: 


  • Maria McDonald – Flocabulary software (All NES students)

“The support received from our Nickajack Foundation has been instrumental in building the Math Lab from the ground up!  Every item wished for has been provided, from hands-on manipulatives to build conceptual understanding, to technology to enhance our application experiences. Thank you NESF for always supporting our students.”
