Student Opportunity Fund
The Student Opportunity Fund is designed to provide financial assistance for education-related expenses that simply can not be covered by any other means. The fund does not replace other typical means of funding, including district budget allocation, the grant program, individual or group fund-raising, sponsorship, or underwriting by local individuals or groups. In most cases, the Student Opportunity Fund is usually the last best option for a student or a student group looking for financial assistance that is education-related.
Examples may include, but are not limited to: unforeseen registration fees or travel expenses for academic competitions; entrance fees for SATs or AP exams; expenses connected with a special recognition; supplies or travel expenses for special community-based projects.
The decision to award grants from the Student Opportunity Fund rests solely with the Ed Fund Board, which determines each grant on a case-by-case basis, using very specific criteria.
