The Mccarthey Dressman Education Foundation
The Foundationís mission is to serve as a catalyst in maximizing the skills and creativity of educators at the K-12 levels and in cultivating pioneering approaches to teaching that result in dynamic student learning. The Foundation sponsors proposals that enhance student learning and educational quality, paying particular attention to those that best serve the at-risk and under-funded including curriculum that excites and challenges; inquiry projects that promote reflection and growth; and after school programs that enrich and inspire. The Foundationís grantmaking supports three different areas: academic enrichment grants, teacher development grants, and student teaching scholarship/mentoring. Academic enrichment grants seek to maximize innovation and results in classrooms and education departments. Teacher development grants seek to increase the effectiveness of individual educators and small teams of teachers. Student teaching scholarships/mentoring grants support students at New Mexico State University, the University of California-Santa Cruz, the University of Texas at Austin, and Stephen F. Austin State University. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
