Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are due Thursday, May 7, 2020 by 4:00 p.m. All applicants and principals will receive a status of application letter in August of 2020. Approved schools will receive a service learning award check issued on September 15, 2020 at the annual Service Learning Event. The Service Learning Team could visit your plan once it is underway. Please keep in touch to let us know how your service learning plans are progressing. You can reach us by phone or email.

As an added incentive, a "Principal's Award" of $1,000 is given to each school that is awarded funding for one or more service learning projects. There is no application for these funds; they are automatically given to all service learning awarded schools. These are unrestricted funds to service either the betterment of the students, the service learning program or the school. The Principal’s Award Report is due Thursday, May 7, 2020 by 4:00 p.m., for all schools receiving a 2019-2020 school year service learning award.
Educational visits to The National World War II Museum, the Audubon Institute, and the Infinity Science Center are offered by the Brown Foundation to all classes receiving a Service Learning Award. Groups are invited as our guest to visit the Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, Aquarium, The National World War II Museum including the Beyond All Boundaries movie and Final Mission experience, and the Infinity Science Center. As a treat to all funded schools, your group may visit one or more sites.
Details and reservation forms were mailed to all qualifying and participating 2019-2020 schools in September 2019. Schools must use required forms to receive free group admission. Please follow instructions and have students send thank you notes to the Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation's President, Edwin Ford Hunter III in care of our mailing address.
