Competitive Grant Partnership Opportunities
Organizations interested in partnering with CPS or our schools on competitive grant applications, including Department of Education grant opportunities, should contact the Department of Competitive Grants to secure district support for grant applications. Partnership selection processes are also regularly posted on this page.
Investing in Innovation FY2012
The U.S. Department of Education has announced a third round of the Investing in Innovation (i3) Grant Competition. Full details and announcements for this competition are available on the Department of Education’s website. Please consult this site for guidance on all i3 grant requirements.
Applicants interested in partnering with the Chicago Public Schools for an i3 grant must submit a CPS Partner Proposal. These proposals will be reviewed by committee and competitively selected for partnership based on project merit and alignment with district priorities. Projects not approved by this process cannot claim CPS as a partner for their i3 application.
Prospective Development applicants should complete the CPS I3 Development Proposal and submit to Beatriz Jimenez (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 4:00 PM on July 31, 2012. Late Applications will not be considered.
