Many students struggle with one or more subjects in school.  Supplemental academic support can help a student overcome these struggles, re-engage learning, and restore personal confidence.  To improve accessibility to academic support services, the Foundation is offering grants for students who need help to pay for tutoring and other academic assistance programs.
 

  • This academic grant program is available to all Issaquah School District students K-12
  • Grants will be awarded up to $500 per student.
  • Setting up a tutor or other ouside academic support
    Family is responsible for setting up the academic support they wish to use and will be asked about their choice in the grant application. NOTE: Any grant money awarded will be given directly to the service provider.  
  • Understanding academic support structures and costs
    While the Foundation’s academic grant can help with the cost, it will not cover the full cost of academic support needed for most students which is important to understand prior to participating in this program.  We have included things to know when looking for academic support below.
