Amanda Rose Laura Fellowship Application
The Amanda Rose Laura Foundation aims to provide enriched educational experiences for students in under-served communities. Filling a gap in educational support for underprivileged students, the foundation's mission is to empower teens with tools to better prepare for college, find employment, and achieve their personal and professional goals.
About the Amanda Rose Laura Fellowship
The Amanda Rose Laura Foundation is soliciting applications from teachers who share our goals for grant fellowships with which to fund their ideas. The Foundation's aim is that the fellowship would empower teachers' time and resources in order to create new curricular and co-curricular opportunities for their students. We are accepting applications for grants up to $2,500.

We encourage applicants to be creative and innovative in their proposals. The strongest applications will propose projects with their students that would span the course of the academic year, build toward a specific goal or set of skills, and fill a gap in what may be available to students through the school curriculum currently accessible to them. Examples include adding a journalism course that would publish a monthly school newspaper, developing a robotics team and taking the team to a competition, starting a mock trial or Model UN program, or even building a sports team. Recent fellows have used funding to build a music recording studio & course, integrate tactile labs into a biology curriculum, and build a community garden. A non-example would be a weekend field trip or a one-day event. These examples and non-examples are only to provide guidance--please do not be limited by them!
