Engelmann Foundation Launches Website
The Engelmann Foundation was created in 1997. The foundation is dedicated to continuing the legacy of Siegfried "Zig" Engelmann through the support, promotion and development of educators around the world implementing Direct Instruction with their students. Over the past 20 years the foundation has distributed 56 grants totaling over $325,000. Recently the Board of Directors made the decision to become more visible, and has launched a new website at https://engelmannfoundation.org/.
The Engelmann Foundation offers two grant opportunities: Conference Grants and General Grants. Conference Grants are tailored to provide funds to attend the annual National Direct Instruction Conference hosted by the National Institute for Direct Instruction in Eugene, Oregon each July. General Grants are designed to support projects, training and development, implementation and other similar endeavors that utilize Direct Instruction (DI) programs. Both grant application types operate on a twice-yearly schedule. The deadlines for submitting grants are 5:00pm PDT June 1st and December 1st. Note that while grant applications are accepted on an on-going basis, applications will be held for consideration until the next grant cycle deadline.
