Innovation Fund 2015/16 Launches!

WHAT I.F.? The Irvington Education Foundation’s INNOVATION FUND (I.F.) wants to turn High School students’ great ideas for school programs into a reality! Ready to get started? Interested students should send a PROGRAM PROPOSAL via email (a persuasive paragraph about your program idea and how you’d like to get it started) to Irvington High School Principal David Cohen by October 9. The most innovative proposals will be invited to move on to an APPLICATION (in which you’ll share a budget, teacher advisor, and approximate timeline for making your program happen). Applications will be due to Mr. Cohen on October 23. IEF volunteers will be available to COACH applicants on how to prepare a great Innovation Fund application between October 9 and October 23. WINNERS of a 2015/16 Innovation Fund Grant will be notified on November 20. To learn more about the INNOVATION FUND, please email info@iefonline.org with questions. (The Innovation Fund is made possible in part by donations from Sunnyside Bank and community members like you. Last school year, the Innovation Fund granted funds to High School students for a new Weather Website, High School students teaching Latin at the Middle School, a High School student teaching Engineering at Main Street School, a Local History Club, High School students teaching a Video Game Design class for Middle School students, an acclaimed student production of 12 Angry Men in the Campus Presentation Room, and more.)
