Humanities Grants

The humanities are academic disciplines that study human culture – the study of language, literature, history and the social sciences. A strong foundation in the humanities is at the core of a well-educated student. In this ever-changing and increasingly digital age, SEF has supported teacher grants that explore new technologies and curricula that engage students and provide instruction that is relevant and inspiring.

Educational Weblinks
Amount funded: $700.00

This grant provided funding to develop a program to integrate educational websites for enrichment of the 2nd-grade curriculum. This pilot program was reviewed by other grade levels for possible integration into their curricula. More than 75 websites were identified and grouped according to content. Student activities were created to go with each website, thereby offering teachers easy access to very usable content and material to enrich the second grade curriculum.
