Applied Learning Grant applications for teachers


After a hiatus for a year or two, our Applied Learning Grants are back! We have $15,000 to grant to Oak Harbor teachers this grant cycle. Applications are due prior to Jan 16th. We are looking forward to seeing your projects. If you have a project outside of the budget maximum go ahead and submit it, depending on the # of requests we may be open to it!


The purposes of this grant are to improve student learning through the hands-on application of WA state and/or National subject area standards and to develop partnerships with parents and community members.  All projects must be completed by the end of the 2023-2024 school year.  Grant recipients will be expected to provide pictures of their project activities by June 2024 and to present their project to the public at the OHEF Banquet for Education event in October 2024. 



This grant application is scored based on the Project Based Learning Six A’s rubric below. The bullets listed on the application under each of the Six A criterion directly align to this rubric.  They are provided for your convenience, and you are encouraged to use them as guidance while completing your application.  While you may attach supplemental documentation if desired, that documentation should be in addition to the Six A criterion information provided and not in place of it.



Print out your completed application and obtain the signature of approval from each applicable building Administrator.   

You must submit the signed application to Mark Moder at Oak Harbor Educational Foundation 

no later than midnight on January 15, 2023.




The Oak Harbor Educational Foundation was formed by caring citizens in 1992 to benefit education in Oak Harbor Schools. OHEF is a private non-profit corporation and all contributions are tax-deductible. The citizen board of directors oversees the use of funds and ensures they further the mission of the Foundation.


OHEF awards over $50,000 in college scholarships and over $15,000 in grants to teachers annually. OHEF depends on funds raised through annual events, one-time donations, annual donors, and endowments which are invested to support ongoing scholarships and programs.
