The Maize Education Foundation strives to support opportunities that encourage Maize students to find their own versions of success and to become responsible, civically engaged adults. Students in grades seven through 12 can apply for a grant of up to $500 to help cover the costs associated with enrichment activities like leadership seminars, expeditions, educational camps, national competitions and more.

Seniors wishing to apply for a Student Enrichment Grant must meet one or both of the following criteria:

  • The proposed activity must take place during the school year.

  • In taking part in the proposed activity, the student must be representing the Maize School District.

 

In Fall 2018, the Foundation awarded nearly $4,000 in Student Enrichment Grants for experiences such as:

  • JEA/NSPA Convention

  • HOBY Youth Leadership Seminar

  • Japanese Immersion Camp

  • Moonifieds Jr Audition Seminar

  • Boys State

 

Maize students in grades seven through 11 are eligible to receive one grant per school year - up to $500!

Each semester we are excited to receive thoughtful and creative grant applications from students throughout the district and always look forward to their photos and essays sharing their learning experiences with us later in the year.
